Romas Viesulas, a young Lithuanian graphic artist, received a Guggenheim Award on the 27th of April, 1958, for his work in the field of graphic art. The $3,600 stipend will enable the artist to carry out one of his favorite projects: the preparation and publication, in a limited edition, of some 50 engravings on ancient Lithuanian folk-song themes. For a fuller introduction to Romas Viesulas, see "Lituanus" Nr. 2 (11) for June, 1957.
