2018 Annual Report
The Granville Arts Commission completed another busy year. The
Commission received twelve grant requests totaling nearly $11,200 all were approved but some at lower levels. We approved a total of $9,520.99 in 2018 which includes some small website maintenance costs.
A few small grants combined into a larger one to reduce administration. Among the approved requests were Bryn Du Mansion art exhibit, Hot Licks Blues Fest, Vintage Voices, Suzuki program, Granville art and candlelight walks, Bryn Du Arts Center, Denison choral concert,Granville Kiwanis Club and art awards to Granville HS students.
Grant recipients reflect the mission of the Granville Arts Commission to support artistic events and activities which are open to the public and enrich the quality of life in Granville. Funding was made to fiscally responsible and well-managed organizations capable of carrying out their proposed activities for positive effect.
Amanda Love resigned from the board and was replaced by Angela Katona representing the Chamber of Commerce. Angela will switch to representing the Granville Foundation and the Chamber is expected to nominate a replacement for her. Wayne Piper resigned representing the community-at-large. Since village council has requested that only one such member remain on the board, Wayne will not be replaced.
The Granville Arts Commission appreciates Jackie O’Keefe being exofficio member representing Council. The Granville Arts Commission thanks Village Council for its continued support.
