The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government's Department of Environmental Quality and LexArts are launching EcoART, a program that lets not-for-profit groups, schools and individual artists apply for up to $5,000 in grants to fund projects that raise public awareness of environmental issues.
The projects can be any art form, including sculpture, painting and performance. Participating schools and groups must be based in Fayette County and although individual artists from outside Lexington may apply, their projects must take place in the county.
Proposals are due Nov. 15. For a grant application form and more information, visit www.lexingtonky.gov/ecoart or www.lexarts.org or call (859) 255-2951.
