Fulton County Arts & Culture Receives National Endowment for the Arts Grant | Print |

 Grant award will be used to fund a County-wide Public Art Master Plan

National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu announced 60 awards totaling $4.1 million supporting projects across the nation through the NEA’s Our Town program.  Fulton County Arts and Culture (FCAC) is one of the recommended organizations for a grant of $75,000 to fund the creation of a Public Art Master Plan for Fulton County.

“The variety and quality of these Our Town projects speaks to the wealth of creativity and diversity in our country,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “Through the work of organizations such as Fulton County Arts & Culture, the NEA funding invests in local communities, helping people celebrate the arts wherever they are.”

“We are excited at the opportunity to use NEA funding to help provide assistance in the creation of a Master Plan to better connect and strengthen the arts and cultural assets in Fulton County over the next ten years,” said Lionell Thomas, Director. “We look forward to working with the NEA and are very appreciative of the support for this very important initiative on behalf of Fulton County residents.”

The Fulton County Arts & Culture Master Plan is a ten-year plan that will provide a clear vision for the future of the public art in Fulton County. The plan will include goals for the county’s arts programming, define priorities and artistic approaches, identify strategic partnerships and possible sources of alternative funding, and provide direction for ongoing program development and management. The plan will also address opportunities for ongoing public engagement, support increased opportunities for artists, and celebrate art as an essential economic development driver for a thriving community.
