The Renton Municipal Arts Commission (RMAC) is reaching out to the Renton arts and cultural community with a funding opportunity. The Commission is currently accepting proposals for the 2011 Arts Grant Program, which will support projects that are consistent with the Commission’s goal to facilitate the implementation of Renton’s Arts & Culture Master Plan. The Arts & Culture Master Plan was adopted by the Renton City Council in August 2010 and can be viewed on the Arts & Culture Master Plan webpage at ArtsCommission.rentonwa.gov.

The Arts Commission anticipates awarding approximately $6,000 for the 2011 Arts Grant Program. Artists and organizations promoting art within the Renton School District boundaries can apply for funding. Applications are due Friday, February 18, 2011. Grant awards will be announced by March 11 and projects must be completed by November 30, 2011.
