Minot Area Council of the Arts allocates $15,000 from grant to support local artists

Local News

With art shows, galleries, and events being done virtually or canceled altogether, artists have been heavily impacted by the pandemic.

That’s why a Minot non profit is using funds it received from a regional grant to provide support for its members.

The Minot Area Council of the Arts used some of the funds to purchase up-to-date streaming equipment for virtual events, but $15,000 has been allocated for grants for area artists and groups.

The Executive Director says just because art events have stopped, doesn’t mean artists have stopped working.

“We felt that it was very important to take the opportunity to give back to them to help them through difficult time cause we don’t want to lose any of our artists we don’t want any of them to wind up in a situation where doors do have to be closed,” Executive Director Justin Anderson said.

The first round of $500 grants will be made available to those who were members of the group in 2020.
