Pocatello Arts Council Looking to Fund Local Projects

If you’re an artist of any kind, the Pocatello Arts Council is offering you a financial hand with your work. 

Currently, the Council is accepting grant applications from artisans to fully or partially fund public arts projects. The group is looking to distribute a total of $1,000 to support visual, literary, and performance arts projects that will enhance Pocatello. 

“An artist’s talents are meant to be shared,” said Mark Cooper, Chair of Pocatello Arts Council. “We encourage artists of all levels and art forms to apply. This is an opportunity to transform a part of the community while leaving a legacy of your talent for years to come.” 

Previous projects funded through Pocatello Arts Council grants include performances of “The Hundred Dresses” in local schools by the Old Town Actors Studio, the purchase of a pottery kiln for Franklin Middle School, costumes for Idaho State University student production of “Voices,” and more.

The grant application period ends September 30. Awardees will be selected at the Pocatello Arts Council’s November 4 meeting. 

The Pocatello Arts Council was established in October 1991 to encourage, enhance, and educate the community with respect to the arts. The board collaborates to identify, plan and administrate public art projects for community enhancement.
