Enhancing the vitality of arts and culture

The Foundation trustees believe that a passionate commitment to the arts is essential for a strong and vibrant community. Art requests should provide opportunities for people to experience, understand, and appreciate how many different kinds of artistic expressions can enrich their lives.

The Foundation gives priority to programs that help increase access to and participation in these areas:

  • Performing Arts – including ballet, symphonies, theaters
  • Visual Arts and Museums – ranging from art galleries to sculpture parks to museums
  • Arts Education – providing opportunities that encourage young people and their families to experience the arts
