Canby Area Arts Council receives grant
Canby Area Arts Council (Formerly know as Canby Arts Council), Canby, MN, has been awarded an Arts Organization Start Up Grant of $1,560 from Southwest Minnesota Arts Council to help obtain 501(c)3 status and provide consultant time with Luanne Fondell, Performing Arts Director, Dawson-Boyd Arts Association, Dawson, MN.
This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
For the past six years, Canby Arts Council has been a committee of the city of Canby, MN, organizing and providing arts opportunities such as Music on Mondays, Sidewalk Art Gallery, along with Hat Daze activities.
Canby Area Arts Council will continue to be committed to supporting and promoting the visual, literary and performing arts by providing programs and events in order to benefit the community and will now expand to include members from the surrounding area.
Exciting changes ahead!
