Through a series of guided arts experiences based on the main character’s artistic talent and interest in Norwegian painter Edvard Munch, the students will create artwork inspired by the novel. Also receiving grants were libraries, museums, historical societies, nature centers and cultural organizations.
“With this final round of grants for 2018 we’ve awarded more than $150,000 to nonprofits across the state this year,” said Keira Amstutz, president and CEO of Indiana Humanities. “Our grants have helped bring valuable humanities programming to dozens of communities - inspiring residents, enhancing quality of life and spurring economic development. We’re honored to support our grant recipients and are excited about the work they’re doing to make our cities, towns and rural areas better places to live, work and play.”
