North Dakota Art Gallery Association receives arts grant

To provide arts programming in its community, the North Dakota Art Gallery Association was awarded a $7,690 Institutional Support grant by the North Dakota Council on the Arts. The grant will enable 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.

NDAGA, a nonprofit corporation promoting growth in North Dakota arts activities since 1975, provides professional training while coordinating exhibitions, information and services for gallery and museum personnel. Administered by a board of nonprofit gallery representatives, it is headquartered in the Minot State University Art Department and overseen by Linda Olson, MSU art professor chair and NDAGA executive director.

NDAGA was among 56 recipients of the most recent Institutional Support grants awarded by NDCA. A total of $426,344 was awarded during this grant round. The Institutional Support grant program is designed to benefit artists, arts 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. This project is supported in part by a grant from NDCA, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. In addition, NDAGA gratefully acknowledges its other supporters, including all community sponsors and local patrons.
