City of Terre Haute Supports the Arts

The City Arts Project Grant Awards were handed out on Thursday. The groups are either operating arts centers, or organizations with an art project planned. The grants are from the economic development income tax funds, and Bennett says re-investing that money in the arts can change the community.
Mayor Duke Bennett handed out seven checks to area non-profits on Wednesday.

It was for the 2013 City Arts Project Grant Awards.
   
The groups are either operating arts centers, or organizations with an art project planned.
   
The grants are from the economic development income tax funds, and Bennett says re-investing that money in the arts can change the community.

"Some people in our community don't even know about a lot of these things. It's because they haven't had the opportunity to be exposed to it. These funds go to provide free opportunities for people to see something maybe they would have never seen before. And then hopefully they'll come back and support those organizations in the long run," said Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett.  "I think the bottom line is we've got so many great organizations, the city is doing their small part...you know these grants are not really big but they are very helpful to what they're trying to accomplish. And it really helps us to be able to sell the community to those on the outside and those on the inside that there are a lot of things to do in Terre Haute."

The groups awarded grants:
- Art Spaces, Inc.
- Community Theater of Terre Haute
- Sheldon Swope Art Museum, Inc.
- Terre Haute Symphony Association
- Chinese School of the Wabash Valley
- Crossroads of American Youth Orchestra
- Terre Haute Community Band
