Artpark & Company has received a grant award totaling $49,500 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), part of an effort to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector. Following New York state’s $105 million investment in the arts for fiscal year 2022, NYSCA has awarded more than $80 million since June.
"The arts have long been a critical sector in our economy and, as we continue to rebuild a stronger New York, it's essential we do all we can to help this industry thrive once again," Gov. Kathy Hochul said. "These awardees represent the best of what New York's vibrant communities have to offer and, with this funding in hand, they will be able to not only continue their creative and inspiring work, but help spur revitalization in their own backyard as well."
A press release noted, “Artpark & Company plans to utilize the grant in support of personnel and artistic fees and services as it plans for another diverse, impactful and exciting season in 2022.”
