Peoria Arts Commission Awards Grants



(Peoria, Arizona) July 2, 2007 — The Peoria Arts Commission recently announced the names of organizations that will receive grant funding from the Peoria Arts Grant Program.

The Peoria Arts Grant Program was launched in 1997 for the purpose of increasing the number of arts opportunities available to Peoria residents. Under the grant program, organizations can apply for up to $3,000 in project grant assistance for performing arts or visual arts projects. The projects must take place in Peoria and demonstrate a direct benefit to the community. The Peoria Arts Commission awarded a total of $29,500 in grant awards. The following grants were awarded for 2007-2008:

Terramar School will receive $1,500 for the Southwest Brass to perform concerts and host clinics for music students. In addition, music students will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform side-by-side with the professionals.

The Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix will receive $2,000 for ArtWeb, a program that develops and improves artistic talent, problem-solving skills, self discipline and confidence in youth at the Boys & Girls Club in Peoria.

The Phoenix Symphony will receive $2,500 for a music education program at Oasis Elementary School.

Centennial High School will receive $2,800 to pay residency fees for a professional musician to instruct the Jazz Band students in 2007-2008.

The Peoria Fine Arts Association will receive $1,500 for professional artists to demonstrate technique at its monthly meetings. The grant will also assist with expenses for art supplies and opportunities to underserved students.

Ballet Arizona will receive $2,500 for Nutcracker Angel Night and Don Quixote Night which will expose Peoria youth to ballet.

Chamber Music West will receive $2,400 for having the Atlantic Brass Quintet perform two concerts for about 500 Peoria students at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts. Chamber Music West also will receive $1,300 for a classical music concert in Peoria performed by the Phoenix Boys Choir.

The Peoria Unified School District will receive $2,000 for an artist-in-residence from the Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation of New York City to teach modern dance technique to 300 dance students at Centennial and Peoria High School.

The Arizona Theater Company will receive $2,500 for organizing guest artist workshops for theater students at Centennial High School and Sunrise Mountain High School.

The Peoria Unified School District will receive $2,000 for funding three visiting artists from the Kennedy Center to facilitate a series of teacher workshops that revolve around arts integration in the regular classroom setting.

“Most of the organizations that receive grants from the Peoria Arts Commission are able to leverage the funding from the City of Peoria with other grants and other sources of funding. This allows arts projects to be undertaken that otherwise would not have been financially possible,” says Linda Ballance, chair of the Peoria Arts Commission.

The Peoria Arts Commission receives funding for the grants and other programs as part of its annual budget appropriation from the Peoria City Council. Since 1997 more than $250,000 has been awarded through the Peoria Arts Grant Program.
