The Dane County Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission and County Executive Joe Parisi announced in a recent press release that dozens of local organizations promoting community arts, history, and culture are receiving “Dane Arts” grants. The grants include 52 project, five Short Order, and two Capital requests totaling $121,557. 

The “Dane Arts” grants are funded by county dollars in conjunction with private donations from the Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation, the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation, and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation. County Executive Joe Parisi and the County Board of Supervisors have allocated an additional $40,000 to fund project grant requests that provide equitable opportunities for youth to participate in the arts. 

This year, Dane County’s Dane Arts will award over $220,000 in public-private funds to nonprofit organizations, schools, individuals, and municipalities for arts, cultural, and local history projects and programs offered countywide.
