Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington received a $10,707 Kentucky Arts Partnership grant from the Kentucky Arts Council.
A check for the grant was presented by state legislators to BCM Executive Director Laurie Risch and BCM Vice-President Gary Johnston on February 24 during Arts Day in Kentucky, an annual celebration of the Commonwealth's arts community and the vital roles it plays in the state's livelihood.
The day is also an opportunity for arts leaders to thank members of the Kentucky General Assembly for their continued support of arts funding through the Kentucky Arts Council. The Behringer-Crawford grant is part of $1.3 million the arts council awarded to 93 nonprofit arts organizations across the state for the 2017 fiscal year.
"Kentucky has excellent arts organizations in every region of the Commonwealth that provide year-round arts experiences in their communities," said Lydia Bailey Brown, arts council executive director. "The state arts agency is proud to partner with Behringer-Crawford Museum to ensure the arts are made available to enrich the lives of all Kentuckians."
