Perry-Mansfield receives state grant for the arts

Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp was one of 128 recipients of Artist and Organization grants from the Colorado Council on the Arts on July 2. The group awarded $9,900 to the summer arts school to support its Discovery Day Camp and Intermediate Camp for the 2009 season, according to a news release from Perry-Mansfield.

The CCA announced 128 awards amounting to $907,000 to individuals, organizations and government agencies in 33 counties, according to the release. The state agency uses state funds and federal money from the National Endowment for the Arts and "invests in communities across the state to ensure that the cultural, educational and economic benefits of the arts are enjoyed by thousands of Colorado youth and millions of Colorado visitors and citizens every day," according to a mission statement on the CCA Web site.

Strings Music Festival and the Steamboat Springs Orchestra also received Artist and Organization Grants for $9,900 each in this grant cycle. Awards are for activities to take place from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. Total CCA grant funds were 25 percent less than they were for the same time period last year, according to the release.
