Tri-C Receives Two Grants From the National Endowment for the Arts
Funding supports music and dance projects in 2017
The National Endowment for the Arts today announced a pair of $20,000 grants to support music and dance projects by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) in 2017.
The Art Works grants to the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation were included in the NEA’s first major funding announcement for next year. The federal agency approved more than $30 million in grants for organizations across the nation.
The Art Works grants to the College will go toward:
• The 38th annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, which will be held June 22-24 at Playhouse Square. The music festival brings world-class jazz to the city while also giving local talent an opportunity to showcase their skills.
• Performances and residency activities by Dance Theatre of Harlem, which will perform two shows Jan. 21 at the Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square. Tri-C is co-presenting the dance company’s visit.
Art Works grants focus on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts and the strengthening of communities through the arts.
“The arts are for all of us, and by supporting organizations such as Cuyahoga Community College, the National Endowment for the Arts is providing more opportunities for the public to engage with the arts,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “Whether in a theater, a town square, a museum or a hospital, the arts are everywhere and make our lives richer.”
