Renton Municipal Arts Commission to provide small arts and culture grants

The Renton Municipal Arts Commission (RMAC) is reaching out to the Renton arts and cultural community with two funding opportunities. The Commission is accepting proposals for the 2012 “Make Art Happen in Renton” Small Grant Program, which supports projects that increase opportunities for art and culture activities. The grant opportunities are consistent with Renton’s Arts & Culture Master Plan, which was adopted by the Renton City Council in August 2010 and can be viewed on the Arts & Culture Master Plan webpage at

The Arts Commission anticipates presenting as many as 10 awards for up to $250 each to artists and organizations promoting art within Renton. Applications are due Friday, June 29, 2012. Grant applications will be screened by the Arts Commission and voted on by the public at Renton River Days. Awards will be announced by August 17, and projects must be completed by December 31, 2012.
