ArtPlace America recently announced it secured close to $28 million in funding to support creative placemaking from 14 foundations, including its newest partner, the Barr Foundation in Boston. This development further underscores the growing impact creative placemaking is having on communities and nonprofit arts organizations across the country.
The Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation recently awarded $250,000 to Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona. What's most striking about this announcement is the immediate and tangible effect of the funding. The gift will enable the program to take in an additional 1,300 children and sign up 100 more volunteers.
