Normal, IL – April 9, 2018 – The Town of Normal is seeking applications for arts-related projects, programs or events to be funded through the 2018 Harmon Arts Grant Program. Applications will be accepted through Thursday, May 10.
Harmon Arts Grants awarded in 2018 are available to art organizations for programs or events taking place between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Priority will be given to programs within the Town of Normal and proposals that make a program or event more accessible to the public, particularly seniors, students and low income residents.
The Harmon Arts Grant Program, named to honor former mayor Paul Harmon, was created in 1993 to help promote the arts in the community. In 2017, Normal awarded 23 grants to support local art programs and events. A full list of 2017 Harmon Art Grant recipients is available on the Town’s website.
The maximum grant award is $5,000. Grant applications will be reviewed by Harmon Arts Grant Committee members who will make recommendations to the Normal Town Council. The Council will select grantees in June, and awards will be presented on June 18.
