Northwest Art Center receives $7,355
To finance regional arts programming, Art Friends of the Northwest Art Center was awarded a $7,355 Institutional Support grant by the North Dakota Council on the Arts. The grant will provide funds for the Minot State University’s two galleries, the Hartnett Hall Gallery and Gordon B. Olson Library Gallery, as well as programming for the Northwest Art Center lecture series.
The Institutional Support program benefits artists, arts organizations and the general public. The program gives general support for qualifying arts and cultural organizations that have strong management and leadership, quality artistic programming and services and are an important part of the arts infrastructure in their communities. A total of $427,095 was awarded during this grant round.
"The Northwest Art Center is a valuable educational and cultural resource for northwest North Dakota," Director Avis Veikley said. "Area school groups take field trips to our galleries, and our lecture series draws audiences from the community as well as from the university."
All exhibitions and lectures are free and open to the public. To learn more about Northwest Art Center activities, visit www.minotstateu.edu/nac.
