The selection awarded is “Ramping Up Our Mission,” a project to increase community access to and training in the arts through performance, talks, demonstrations, and workshops.
“We’re so excited to have this boost from the NEA,” said Administrator Paula Lisowsky. “We can start with our second annual Little River-Big Arts festival on June 4 and 5 – this grant allows us to expand it to two days. One focus of this program was to pair arts professionals with the community in a learning environment, so we will be offering workshops free of charge during the arts festival, and SKIT is planning several theater workshops in conjunction with its next performance.”
The Janice Mason Art Museum is open Tuesdays – Saturdays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Evening hours can be arranged for group tours at no charge. Admission is free; donations are greatly appreciated.
Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre and Janice Mason Art Museum are subsidiaries of the Cadiz Community Arts Center. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency supports the Cadiz Community Arts Center with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
