Announcing Medford Arts Council Grant Winners
Congratulations to the Medford Arts Council's grant winners for 2013!
The Arts Council distributed $17,415 in funding. The 34 winning projects include a River Life Mural Project at the Andrews Middle School; West Medford Open Studios in late April; performances at Circle the Square in Medford Square on Third Thursdays during the summer; a dance performance at the Brooks Estate; CACHE’s Third Annual Medford on the Mystic Festival in October; the Medford Public Library’s Community Read; and dozens more arts and culture programs serving seniors, school children, and the general public.
The Arts Council’s 2013 allocation from the Massachusetts Cultural Council totaled $15,440. Arts Council members and the community increased this amount through fundraising efforts, including local donations from individuals and businesses.
“Arts Council grants enhance our quality of life,” says State Sen. Pat Jehlen. “Programs funded by the Medford Arts Council benefit so many people from all walks of the community. I’m especially looking forward to the third Medford on the Mystic Festival in October, which does so much to bring us together and celebrate creativity in Medford.”
