Any art organization based in Elgin can apply for a Cultural Arts Commission grant to help fund projects or programs to help enhance art and culture within the City. Applications are available online at www.cityofelgin.org and will be accepted through Friday, October 26, 2007, 5:00 p.m. – no exceptions will be made.
Grants are selected based on artistic quality and aesthetic or cultural impact. Requests are also evaluated to determine if projects provide art access to special populations or services areas that don’t regularly have art programs.
Elgin’s Cultural Arts Commission works to enhance the quality of life for all Elgin residents by helping develop arts and cultural programs and by fostering art education opportunities.
The Cultural Arts Commission looks forward to working with Elgin arts groups. If you have any questions please contact Gil Feliciano at 847-931-6019.
