The Indiana Arts Commission has awarded grants to 56 Hoosier artists who will receive career development assistance in 2020. The funding comes from the agency’s Individual Advancement Program and artists can request up to $2,000 for certain projects.
The commission accepted grant applications from artists who dance, write literature, theatre, music, folk art projects related to traditional art disciplines and from artists with disabilities. Artists also applied in the early career grant category if they had been pursuing their arts career for less than five years.
“Artists living and pursuing a career in Indiana are a valuable part of the fabric of their community, and contribute the local and state economy as they purchase supplies or equipment, and pay utilities and taxes,” said Lewis C. Ricci, IAC Executive Director. “These grants help increase the opportunity for artists to successfully advance their careers and continue to live in and contribute to economic success of our state.”
Volunteer citizen review panels reviewed 70 project proposals and awarded $109,432. You can view the complete list of recipients below:
