Museum Receives $50,000 Grant

The Art Museum will have new painting racks in storage, thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Institute Of Museum and Library Services.  We were in danger of running out of storage space, as President and Dr. Capilouto learned on their visit last Fall.  This will allow the museum's collection to continue to grow.  The grant will also provide updated storage for works on paper.  The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of Federal funding for the national libraries and museums. These grants are extremely competitive. In this series, only 1 in 5 was awarded.

Here the Capiloutos and our Advisory Board Chair, Mike Moran view works of art by Appalachian artist David Lucas.
