Dozens of local organizations that promote community arts, history, and culture are receiving “Dane Arts” grants, County Executive Joe Parisi and the Dane County Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission announced today. 43 project grants and three capital grants totaling $99,801 are being awarded in the second cycle of “Dane Arts” grants in 2021.

“We are fortunate to have so many creative artists sharing their talents with the Dane County community,” said County Executive Parisi. “Congratulations to this year’s ‘Dane Arts’ grant recipients. We proudly support our arts and culture communities and look forward to the exciting experiences and performances that will be able to be carried out with the support of these funds.”

The “Dane Arts” grants are funded by county dollars in conjunction with private donations from the Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation, the Evjue Foundation, Inc., charitable arm of The Capital Times, the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation, and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation.

This year, Dane County’s Dane Arts will award over $201,000 in public-private funds to nonprofit organizations, schools, individuals, and municipalities for arts, cultural, and local history projects and programs offered countywide.
