Applications for LexArts grants due May 22

Applications are available for LexArts' Community Arts Grants.

To be eligible, programs and projects must be undertaken from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. May 22.

Grants are available for not-for-profit groups as well as individual artists in Fayette County, though an individual artist has to partner with a not-for-profit arts group.

LexArts expects this to be a competitive year for grants and says successful applications probably will have the widest community impact.

First-time applicants must attend a grant-writing workshop at 5:30 p.m. May 5 at ArtsPlace, 161 North Mill Street.

For applications, guidelines and more information, visit or contact Nathan Zamarron, LexArts community arts manager, at (859) 255-2951 or
