CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Arts Council is accepting applications for 2019/20 Arts in Education and Community Arts Development grants. Each year the Council makes AIE grant awards to support programming in schools through the Art in Education Grant and to community organizations through the Community Arts Development Grant. Qualifying programs range from art related assemblies and artists in residences in schools to performance and operational assistance to non-profit arts organizations. Since 1984, more than $640,000 has been awarded in support of the arts in Queen Anne’s County.
Arts Council Executive Director Rick Strittmater said, “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to provide support to some of the wonderful art based nonprofit organizations and groups we have here in Queen Anne’s County. My hope is that the financial boost these grants provide will help to expand their efforts in a meaningful way.”
Eligible programming includes the visual arts, music, performance and literary programs for presentation in local schools and performance and operational expenses for community arts organizations.
These awards are made possible in part by funding from the Maryland State Arts Council, Queen Anne’s County, and the Town of Centreville.
