Ceremony Recognizes 2012-13 Arts & Culture Grant Award Winners

The Arts & Culture Roundtable recognized the groups that are expanding their arts offerings to the community through grants awarded during the 2012-13 cycle. The grants are designed to build organizational sustainability and audience development because those are two areas identified as “red flags” for arts in the bi-annual Community Focus Reports for Springfield-Greene County. Several larger “transformative” grants were awarded to groups with budgets of less than $150,000. Other awards went to a variety of creative ideas and programming to enhance the arts for the community. CFO Board Chair Jill Reynolds presented the grants, below, to each organization, which described its project.
