North Dakota Art Gallery Association receives grant

In support of efforts to provide arts programming in their community, the North Dakota Art Gallery Association (NDAGA) was awarded a $6,921 Institutional Support grant by the North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA).

The North Dakota Art Gallery Association is administered by a board of nonprofit gallery representatives. The NDAGA is headquartered in the Minot State University Art Department and MSU art professor chair Linda Olson is the executive director. The NDAGA is a nonprofit corporation promoting growth in North Dakota art activities founded in 1975. It provides professional training while coordinating exhibitions, information and serves for gallery and museum personnel.

The Institutional Support grant will help provide funds to the NDAGA to foster the public’s appreciation and understanding of the arts, organize a support network for rural and urban art communities, provide common services for organizations engaged in cultural activities, and sponsor cultural performances and fine arts exhibits.

“The North Dakota Art Gallery Association is grateful for the support of the North Dakota Council on the Arts. With this funding we can continue to provide quality opportunities for artists and communities to enjoy art,” said Board President Deana Novak.

North Dakota Art Gallery Association was among 55 recipients of the Institutional Support Grants awarded by the NDCA. The Institutional Support grant program is designed to benefit artists, art organizations, and the general public. The program provides general support for qualifying arts and cultural organizations that have proven they 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 $379,248 was awarded during this grant round.

The North Dakota Council on the Arts is the state agency responsible for the support and development of the arts throughout North Dakota through disbursement of funding received from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
