NEA Awards $20,000 to Lawndale Art Center
Lawndale Art Center

December, 2015

In its first 50 years, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) awarded more than $5 billion in grants to recipients in every state and U.S. jurisdiction, the only arts funder in the nation to do so. Yesterday, the NEA announced awards totaling more than $27.6 million in its first funding round of fiscal year 2016, including an Art Works award of $20,000 to Lawndale Art Center to support the creation of new work by local artists.
 
The Art Works category supports the creation of work and presentation of both new and existing work, lifelong learning in the arts, and public engagement with the arts through 13 arts disciplines or fields.
 
NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, "The arts are part of our everyday lives - no matter who you are or where you live - they have the power to transform individuals, spark economic vibrancy in communities, and transcend the boundaries across diverse sectors of society. Supporting projects like the one from Lawndale Art Center offers more opportunities to engage in the arts every day."
 
"This support from the NEA affirms the importance of having spaces like Lawndale Art Center. Through this award we look forward to increasing and improving our support of and for local artists to present their work," said Nicole Romano, Lawndale Board Chair.
 
Support from the NEA will allow Lawndale to further its mission of developing local contemporary artists and the audience for their art, through over 20 exhibitions annually, an annual rotating mural and the Lawndale Artist Studio Program.
