Arts Council awards $44,000 to support Evansville youth arts programs
EVANSVILLE – The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana awarded $44,000 to 15 local organizations and schools this week.
The grants allow organizations to create and continue unique arts programming for Vanderburgh County students.
The 15 schools and organizations applied for the Arts Council’s annual Sponsorship of the Arts grant this spring. An Arts Council committee selected the organizations over the summer. The funding comes from the Arts Council’s Community Arts Fund.
“Children thrive when provided opportunities for creativity and expression,” said Anne McKim, executive director of The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana. “The 2021 Sponsorship Grant programs will allow thousands of young people to participate in the arts in their schools and throughout our community, and we’re delighted to be a catalyst for this inspiration and enrichment.”
