Celebrating Valley Arts...And Valley Vets

February 6, 2017

 Rep. Linda Gentile and Sen. George Logan on Feb. 6 visited the Valley Arts Council to celebrate the Council’s recently awarded state grants.

The Valley Arts Council is receiving $3,200 for a project called "Support Our Veterans Through the Arts"  which focuses on Derby, Ansonia, Seymour, Oxford, Naugatuck and Beacon Falls.  

The grants are funded through the state Department of Economic Development’s Office of the Arts’ Regional Grant Initiative Program (REGI) and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

The REGI program supports small, collaborative projects that promote access to the creative process or the creative experience, especially those that experiment with new ways to apply the arts within community.
