Community Arts Access grant gives our arts partners opportunities to bring additional programming to our community. Our 2017 partners include Buchanan Community Chorus, Ecumenical Singers of Monmouth, Immaculate Conception School, and Monmouth Civic Orchestra. These performances are funded in part by a joint effort between the BCA, the Illinois Arts Council Agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Remember how powerful these opportunities are for our children and for the future of the arts in our community.
The Buchanan Center for the Arts is honored to have been awarded $5,600 through the Illinois Arts Council’s Community Arts Access regranting program. These funds are designated to support artists and not-for-profit arts organizations in Warren County. All eligible grant proposals are reviewed by a peer panel comprised of representatives from Warren County. Community Arts Access grants are available for visual, musical, performing, literary and inter-disciplinary arts projects that provide community-based programming. Projects employ artists from the Warren County area. Projects or programs must make an effort to serve diverse and underserved audiences. Eligible projects are those taking place between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.
The BCA is pleased to announce this year's IACA Community Arts Access grant award winners are: Buchanan Community Chorus, Ecumenical Singers of Monmouth, Immaculate Conception School, and Monmouth Civic Orchestra. Congratulations to our award winners and be sure to mark your calendars for their upcoming performances!
