SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Arts & Museums is pleased to announce the first round of Arts Project Grants are now available. The application deadline is May 13, 2016.
Arts Project grants enable organizations and groups, whose primary mission may or may not be arts-based, to develop and provide unique arts programs and opportunities to the community. Examples of fundable projects include festivals, exhibitions, concerts, creative place-making endeavors tied to community revitalization, or other innovative public presentations that advance the arts in a community or geographic region.
Request range is $500-$2,000, with a 1:1 cash match. Last year, Utah Arts & Museums granted more than $72,000 to programs across the state.
“The applicant pool is always brimming with worthy projects, and it is our privilege to assist these organizations in advancing their arts programming,” Utah Division of Arts & Museums Director Gay Cookson said.
