Six county arts organizations will receive state funds, state Sen. Andy Dinniman announced Thursday.

The  grants, which support the arts programs and operations of local nonprofits, were recently approved by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
The recipients are the Brandywine Ballet Company, $4,630; the Chester County Art Association, $8,274; Historic Yellow springs, $4,426; People’s Light and Theatre Company, $61,217; Phoenix Village Art Center, $2,387; and West Whiteland Friends of the Park, $2,000.
“Our arts and cultural organizations are important to the education of our children, the quality of life in our communities, the preservation of our heritage and the success of numerous local economies across Pennsylvania,” Dinniman said in a press release. “And it is crucial that we continue to support them in their efforts and programs.”

    Hi Paul –
    What a shame to see that KSCC wasn’t included in this grant from the PA Council on the Arts. I would not want to see Monica stressing about these grants at the moment, but if I can be of help down the road getting the ball rolling, let me know.
