The local non-profit arts and cultural community will receive $40,000 in financial support from the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture. Requests totaling $69,736 came from 21 organizations. Funding was awarded to 18 non-profit organizations through the Commission’s annual grant program. The donations help underwrite all types of local arts and cultural projects ranging from festivals, dance and theatrical performances, art camp, art exhibits, and musical concerts. The community will benefit from a broad diversity of projects that will reach a wide variety of interests and ages.
Many of these events are free or at a minimal cost to the public thanks to this grant. Organizations are anticipating $478,172 in revenue, paying 381 artists and projecting attendance to be $542,183. The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture congratulates the awardees and looks forward to an engaging 2018 season of arts and culture in the Grand Valley.
The grant program is open to any Colorado non-profit agency for arts and cultural projects that are held in Mesa County. The process opens in December and closes in February annually.
