State Grants $20K to Westport Arts Center

State Rep.  Jonathan Steinberg of Westport announced today $20,088 in state funding for the Westport Arts Center and arts programs.

“Westport has a vibrant arts community,” Steinberg said. “I am so pleased the state is investing in our thriving arts scene.”

The state Department of Economic & Community Development (DECD) awarded grants from its Connecticut Artist in Every Community program and Arts Leadership program funded by appropriations approved by the General Assembly and federal dollars received from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Community Investment Act.

The grants include a $5,000 for Artists in the Community and $15,088 for Sustaining Relevance.

The Artist in Every Community and Arts Leadership programs issues grants to promote teaching and learning through high quality arts engagement and arts integration, state officials said.

The program provides opportunities for residents of all ages, in every community, to interact with practicing artists “in ways that will advance Connecticut cities, towns and villages as meaningful communities in which to live, work, learn and play,” they said.
