Pickett Announces More than $200,000 in Local Arts Grants
5/17/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) today announced that a number of local arts projects will receive state grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. In total, more than $218,000 is being invested in a wide range of projects throughout the 110th District.

“These grants will help support a wide range of visual and performing arts throughout the area, and I’ll be very excited to see some of the finished projects,” said Pickett, a legislative member of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. “Investing in the arts, especially in a rural area such as ours, pays enormous dividends as the grants will enhance our quality of life. These projects and events being funded also have a tangible economic benefit as they attract visitors to our area.”

The recipients include:

  • Greater Wyalusing Chamber of Commerce, Wyalusing -- $1,430 for a “Day of Bluegrass.”
  • Winding Rivers Players, Towanda -- $1,825 for a community musical.

  • Bradford County Regional Arts Council -- $85,244 for support of a council-initiated grant for the Arts in Education Partnership program servicing Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga, Wyoming and Montour counties.
  • Bradford County Regional Arts Council -- $107,621 for support of a council-initiated grant for the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts program servicing Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga and Wyoming counties.
  • Towanda Area Elementary School, Towanda -- $1,787 for bowed psaltery lessons for third-graders and workshops/concerts for the community.
  • The Valley Chorus, Athens -- $1,430 for a winter concert with a 100-voice community chorus in the auditorium of the Athens Area High School.
  • Artist Karen Black, Dushore -- $1,373 for the creation and design of a coloring and activity book, which is the third in the Endless Mountains Series: Small Town Americana featuring Dushore.
  • Sullivan County Council on the Arts -- $3,000 for the support of the Sullivan County Council on the Arts.
