We’re in the Money

Feeling stimulated? You might be if you work in the arts. The National Endowment for the Arts has announced direct grants under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The grants have been given to “nonprofit arts organizations are receiving grants to support the preservation of jobs that are threatened by declines in philanthropic and other support during the current economic downturn.”

Minnesota made out pretty well. Better than, say, LA, says the LA TimesJacket Copy blog. The full list of Minnesota recipients is here.

The grants are good news for local literary organizations including Coffee House Press, Graywolf Press, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Milkweed Editions, and Springboard for the Arts. They’re not so good for folks outside the metro area. The only recipient who’s even close to being in greater Minnesota is the Franconia Sculpture Park–and they’re an easy drive from the Cities, in Schafer.–David E
