The Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh recently awarded Marie Romanelli and George Blank the 2013 Roy A. Hunt Foundation Award for Commitment to Education in the Arts and Humanities.

Dr. Romanelli and Mr. Blank team teach at Franklin Regional Middle School in Murrysville, PA. They’ve brought students to the Frick a dozen times, using its diverse artistic and historic resources to teach cross-curricular cultural units. At a ceremony earlier this month, the school received a $3,000 award to help defray the cost of future field trips and enrichment activities. Students of Ms. Romanelli and Mr. Blank  received 150 complimentary admission passes to Clayton, the Frick’s house museum. The Frick posted a slide show from the event on its Flickr Page.

The Foundation established the award in 1999 to annually honor an educator (or team) who has demonstrated a commitment to participating in the Frick’s education programs, and who has successfully integrated the arts into their students’ learning experience.

At the end of July, the Foundation launched a new online application system, powered by the software company Good Done Great. The system has the following benefits:

  • Nonprofits will be able enter and update their information as it changes and not have to retype standard organizational details
  • The foundation’s office will be able to more quickly and easily route information to our Trustees scattered across the country
  • Nonprofits and the foundation will save on mailing and paper costs, reducing our shared environmental footprint
  • Good Done Great is a certified B Corporation, a new organizational form that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and that is committed to sustainable business practices.

Both previous grantees and organizations applying for the first time will use the application system to submit letters of intent or proposals. Please read our updated application guidelines before you choose to submit anything to us. Because the system is new to you and to us, we know there may be questions and an occasional glitch. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at 412.281.8723 or info@rahuntfdn.org and we’ll happily guide you through the process.

The Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh recently awarded Joann Urbaniak the 2012 Roy A. Hunt Foundation Award for Commitment to Education in the Arts and Humanities.

Ms. Urbaniak has taught at North Allegheny Intermediate High School for 24 years. She brings her students to the Frick annually, using its resources to help them create their own art and discover and appreciate their own family histories. An educational highlight for students and museum staff is Ms. Urbaniak’s first-person presentation of the story of her immigrant grandmother, which she presents at the end of each Frick program.

The Foundation established the award in 1999 to annually honor an educator who has demonstrated a commitment to participating in the Frick’s education programs, and who has successfully integrated the arts into the students’ learning experience. The school will receive $3,000 to help defray the cost of future field trips and enrichment activities. Ms. Urbaniak’s students will receive 180 complimentary admission passes to Clayton, the Frick’s house museum.
