Region’s arts groups rake in the NEA grants

SIFF, Bumbershoot, the Tony Awards…lots of nominations and announcements coming out this week. Now it’s the National Endowment for the Arts’ turn: of 817 nonprofit groups nationwide receiving Art Works grants, 31 are from Washington.

Some of the biggest grants: $60,000 to 5th Avenue Theatre, to support a student-run and -performed production of “Oliver!”; $20,000 to Velocity Dance Center to support Maximum Velocity 2013 (summer dance programs); $35,000 to 826 Seattle for a free writing program for students; $30,000 to the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, to support programming in conjunction with a permanent exhibit on the  history of South Asians in America;  $30,000 to Seattle Theater Group for multidisciplinary presentations through its Art in the Community program; and $25,000 to Town Hall Seattle, for the 2013-14 Global Rhythms season. Complete list here.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Velocity Dance Center received two NEA grants. They received one, for Maximum Velocity 2013. In addition, Philadelphia Dance Projects received funding for a program that will send a dancer to Velocity under the auspices of the SCUBA National Touring Network.
