$180k in grants distributed to the arts across Oregon

OREGON – 40 art projects addressing community needs throughout the state have together received $180,000 total through the Arts Build Communities Grants.

A grant over $3,500 came locally to the Ashland High Arts Advocates.

The funding will support arts mentoring to low-income students grades 6-12 in the Ashland area.

The Oregon Arts Commission says the Arts Builds Communities program targets broad geographic impact along with arts access for under-served audiences in Oregon.

It says the grants are made possible through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
