Lanesboro Arts Center one of 59 projects selected nationwide

Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. -- The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced 59 Our Town grant awards totaling $4.725 million and reaching 34 states in the Our Town program’s third year of funding. Lanesboro Arts Center (LAC) is one of those grantees and will receive $50,000 to support components of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, which is made up of art in public spaces, buildings that house the arts, pedestrian walkways defined by art, and a walking tour that connects people with the arts. “National recognition from such a prestigious source as the NEA provides momentum as we embark on this exciting placemaking project and progress towards our overall fundraising goal,” stated LAC Executive Director John Davis.

Through Our Town, the NEA supports creative placemaking projects that help transform communities into lively, beautiful, and sustainable places with the arts at their core. The grantee projects will encourage creative activity, create community identity and a sense of place, and help revitalize local economies. All Our Town grant awards were made to partnerships that consisted of at least one nonprofit organization and a local government entity.

The Lanesboro Arts Campus project is a partnership between the Lanesboro Arts Center and the City of Lanesboro. NEA Our Town funding for the ‘Lanesboro Arts Campus’ project will be specifically targeted to integrate art into the existing city infrastructure of a parking lot, public gateway park, and connecting walking trail. Artful wayfinding systems, poetry, and public art will connect the community with downtown art spaces and integrate the arts into the social fabric of the city, engaging the city and its visitors while promoting economic development.

“This is an exciting time to announce the Our Town grants as a national conversation around creative placemaking advances and deepens,” said NEA Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa. “The NEA leads on this topic not only through our funding but through webinars, publications, and research. With these resources we will help to ensure that the field of creative placemaking continues to mature, enhancing the quality of life for communities across the country.”

The NEA received 254 applications for Our Town this year. Grant amounts ranged from $25,000 to $200,000 with a median grant amount of $50,000. For a complete listing of projects recommended for Our Town grant support, please visit the NEA web si .....
