Benoit Rolland

HOLD FOR RELEASE AT 12:01 A.M. EDT, TUESDAY, OCT. 2 – In this Sept. 13, 2012 photo provided by the Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Benoit Rolland, 58, a stringed-instrument bow maker who experiments with new designs and materials to create violin, viola, and cello bows that rival the quality of prized 19th century bows and meet the artistic demands of today’s musicians, is seen at his home in Watertown, Mass. Rolland is among 23 recipients of this year’s MacArthur Foundation “genius grants.” (AP Photo/Courtesy of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Tsar Fedorsky)
