Western Plains Arts Association announces that it is among a select group of regional artists and organizations to receive a Mid-America Arts Alliance Regional Touring grant.
This award will support Jana Jae and her band at the Cultural Arts Center in Colby on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 3 p.m. CDT. Jana Jae will also be involved in an outreach works-shop which will be held in the CCC Choir Room at 1 p.m., Oct. 13.
Funding for Jana Jae through the M-AAA Regional Touring grant is drawn from generous underwriting by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission, and foundations, corporations, and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.
Mid-America Arts Alliance is the nation’s oldest regional arts organization and was founded in 1972 for cultural growth in heartland communities. Mid-America Arts Alliance strengthens and supports artists, cultural organizations, and communities throughout our region and beyond. They are especially committed to enriching the cultural life of underserved communities by providing high quality, meaningful, and accessible arts and cultural programs and services.
Todd Stein, M-AAA Chief Executive Officer, and Western Plains Arts Association is to be commended for their commitment to serving the northwest Kansas community with this distinctive event. Audiences in northwest Kansas will have the opportunity to see the exciting work of Jana Jae, many for the first time. Mid-America Arts Alliance is proud to help support this work.
