The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana announced grants totaling more than $125,000.
“The Arts Council uses a variety of tools and resources to ensure that high quality arts experiences are available in our community” said Anne McKim, executive director of the Arts Council. “The organizations being awarded are pillars of the arts community of Vanderburgh County and southwestern Indiana, and very deserving of the important support these grants provide.”
Four outstanding local groups were honored. The recipients this year are:
-Evansville Museum of Arts, Science, and History
-Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra
-Public Education Foundation
-Evansville-Vanderburgh County School Corporation
Each recipient received an equal grant amount. Additional grants will be made to other individuals, groups, and organizations later in the year.
“The Arts Council Board recognizes the pivotal role these groups play in the Evansville arts community” said Bob Musgrave, President of the Arts Council Board. “The grants will be used to allow the arts in Vanderburgh County to flourish and grow, which is exactly what they are intended for.”
