San Antonio’s Artpace will receive a $60,000 NEA grant

Yesterday, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)’s first of two major grant announcements of fiscal year 2018 was delivered. More than $25 million in grants across all artistic disciplines will be awarded to nonprofit organizations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Texas was awarded 43 NEA grants with a total dollar amount of $1,122,000:

“It is energizing to see the impact that the arts are making throughout the United States. These NEA-supported projects are good examples of how the arts build stronger and more vibrant communities, improve well-being, prepare our children to succeed, and increase the quality of our lives,” said the NEA Chairman. “At the National Endowment for the Arts, we believe that all people should have access to the joy, opportunities, and connections the arts bring.”
