The Project Stream is open to individual artists and community groups who apply for support of an arts-related project with strong public impact. Currently 22 PPA Projects in our 2016-2017 project cycle are reaching a wide range of constituents, from young children to senior citizens, and engaging audiences through exhibitions, concerts, films, workshops, and performances.
Our 2016-2017 PPA Project Stream Grants have been awarded. Thank you for this year’s applicants, and congratulations to the winners!
Arts Count Celebration
Arts Count celebrates the essential public and private partnerships that fuel the arts, engages business and foundation leaders as well as elected officials to be advocates for arts and culture, and acknowledges the year’s grant recipients.
Free to members of the Arts Council and grant recipients, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council event honors the Project Stream and Program Stream recipients awarded state arts grants through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts.
On October 19, 2016, we rallied together to celebrate the creative realm of the arts in our community and honor the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts grant recipients. The event was held at Smooth-On, Inc. in Macungie, PA, and guests toured the impressive facility, took part in mold-making, and received professional quality scrapes, scars, and scabs makeup.
