The Minnesota State Arts Board has awarded forty-eight grants through the 2013 Arts Access program. The grants will distribute $2,182,573 to statewide organizations in 2013 to help arts organizations identify underserved
communities, identify the barriers that keep them from engaging in the arts, and develop and implement strategies to reduce or eliminate the barriers.
According to new research by the Minnesota Council on Foundations (MCF), Minnesota grantmaking to the arts rebounded significantly in 2010, growing to $129 million, which is 20 percent above 2009 levels. The rise follows an almost steady decline in arts giving since 2004.
Students in grades 9, 10 and 11 who are attending public, private, or home schools and living in the Lake Region Arts Council region (which includes Douglas County), are eligible to submit online applications for an arts study award worth over $500.
