Morris Arts Bestows 27 Grants Totaling $55,700
Morris Arts is announcing that 27 Morris County arts organizations have received Local Arts Grants from the state totaling $55,700 for funding year 2020.
These grants help support visual arts, theatre, dance, instrumental and choral groups, museums, and broad-based community arts programming which, in turn, enable thousands of people throughout our county to experience the arts in a multitude of ways. Funding is made possible through the Local Arts Program of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
This year’s Morris County awardees include:
Arts! By the People (Morristown);
County College of Morris Teen Arts Festival (Randolph);
Lyrica Chamber Music (Chatham Township);
Additionally, $2,000 will be awarded for mini-grants in 2020.
Morris Arts is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1973 dedicated to building community through the arts. Using the arts to inspire, connect and engage, Morris Arts serves as a resource for Morris County with a special focus on arts programming in the community and in the schools, arts advocacy, creative placemaking and support of the Morris Area community of artists and arts organizations.
The New Jersey State Council on the Arts has awarded Morris Arts a “Citation of Excellence” and designated it as a “Major Service Organization” in recognition of its “solid history of service excellence, substantial activity and broad public service.”
