IAAE was one of the recipients of money for Art Jobs from the Iowa Arts Council. On July 24, Governor Culver and Lt. Governor Patty Judge announced the awards of $475,200 to organizations around the state.
The awards – made by the Iowa Arts Council, Arts Midwest and the National Endowment for the Arts – are supported by funding from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The NEA, which awarded ARRA funding directly to arts organizations, also awarded ARRA funding to both the Iowa Arts Council and Arts Midwest for re-granting to preserve arts jobs.
The $25,000 awarded to IAAE will be used to pay our Executive Director Diane Franken of Davenport.
