Today, the Oregon Arts Commission announced its first round of grant awards for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
Grants were awarded in three different categories. Operating Support grants were awarded to leading arts groups throughout Oregon for their role in social, educational, and economic arenas. Arts Learning grants are for in-classroom, after-school, and off-site activities, contributing to Oregon’s high level goals for education. The third category is in Arts Services which provides operating funds for arts councils, like Portland’s Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC), to make art accessible in all parts of Oregon.
Portland was honored with the largest amount of grant money awarded by the Commission. Local recipients include RACC, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Portland Art Museum, and the Oregon Symphony Association.
Special thanks to the Commission for supporting our local arts community!
