Dollars for Art Jobs in Iowa Including IAAE

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.
