Government Support for Environmental Art

Some 16 central Kentucky arts projects are receiving government support to further an environmental message.  This year’s Eco-Art grants cover everything from performances, to photographs, to sculptures.  Each has an environmental theme.  Lexington Mayor Jim Gray says the Eco-Art program helps the city creatively connects citizens with the environment.

  Grants are available to non profit groups, schools, and individual artists within Fayette County.  67 thousand dollars were awarded to help educate citizens on issues ranging from energy conservation, waste reduction, water quality, recycling, and litter.
