(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – Tuscarawas Arts Partnership (TAP) is excited to announce the recipients of the first Tuscarawas Arts Support Grant which was established to provide additional funding support for arts-based projects and programs within Tuscarawas County. Several local organizations applied and were awarded funding from the Tuscarawas Arts Support Grant.
The Dennison Railroad Depot Museum was awarded $500.00 for their project, “Dennison WWII Poster Mural Project: A Downtown Beautification Project.” The project will include ten World War II wartime poster-size murals for the next phase of the downtown beautification project this spring, summer, and fall.
ARTSNCT INC was awarded $500.00 for their project, “Arts for All.” ARTSNCT INC plans to offer three performances of the play “Four Old Broads” at no cost to the Newcomerstown community and to all residents in the tri-county area with an emphasis on serving low-income families, senior citizens and local veterans.
Funding for the Tuscarawas Arts Support Grant was made possible through TAP’s fundraising initiatives as well as corporate support and individual donations from the pARTners of TAP.
TAP’s mission is to create and support environments that awaken, empower, and inspire. TAP’s vision is to promote a visible, sustainable, local arts culture through advocacy, education, and funding. This can be accomplished by encouraging the arts to thrive across Tuscarawas County, and encouraging partnerships between the arts with other art, business, and community agencies to create positive impact and benefits throughout the county.
