Grant boosts arts at Limberlost

Taking Note

The Indiana Arts Commission has announced approval of 72 projects for the 2020 Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites program, including $3,000 to Arts Place to hold summer art enrichment classes at the home of Gene Stratton Porter at the Limberlost Historic Site. 

The program is being made possible through a partnership with Indiana State Parks and Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. 

Arts in the Parks at the Limberlost will start in June through the end of July for children ages 6-12. Class registration fees are $5 per class with a $30 maximum per student. Scholarships are available for those with financial need.
