The day is also an opportunity for arts leaders to thank members of the Kentucky General Assembly for their continued support of arts funding through the Kentucky Arts Council.
Sen. Stan Humphries presented the Janice Mason Art Museum with a check for $2,475 for a Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) grant awarded by the arts council in July 2012.
The funding awarded to Janice Mason Art Museum is part of $1.7 million the arts council awarded to 104 nonprofit arts organizations across the state for the 2013 fiscal year.
“Kentucky is fortunate to have excellent arts organizations in every region of the Commonwealth that provide arts experiences to audiences in their communities and visitors alike,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “The state arts agency is proud to partner with Janice Mason Art Museum to ensure the arts are made available to all Kentuckians.”
KAP grants provide operating support on a competitive basis to arts and cultural organizations and community arts programs to ensure year-round participation in the arts is available to the people of Kentucky.
