The Lewiston Council on the Arts recently received notification of its award of decentralization grant funding in support of two projects.
"Et Tu, Shakespeare?" is an original family show created by Shakespeare In Delaware Park, where four actors take the audience on a journey through Shakespeare's time and perform excerpts from a wide range of the Bard's works. This new event will take place at the Hennepin Park Gazebo at 7 p.m. Monday, June 29.
The LCA teams up again with Just Buffalo Literary Center to present "Lewiston Arts Café," which takes place at the Historic Lewiston Opera Hall June 9, Sept. 8 and Nov. 10. Hosted by Maria Sebastian and Perry Nicholas, this event features some of the finest local poets and musicians.
These programs are funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. They're administered by Arts Services Initiative of Western New York.
"Arts Services Initiative is proud to support these two programs in Niagara County. The Lewiston Council on the Arts continues to bring a wide variety of arts and culture programming into the region, and we recognize the need for more literary and performance arts through this grant award," ASI Associate Director Jennifer Swan said.
