Renton Municipal Arts Commission Announces Grants for 2015

Renton, WA: The Renton Municipal Arts Commission (RMAC) has announced the 2015 RMAC grant recipients. This year’s total amount awarded was over $9,000, and the recipients were selected based on how they achieve the commission’s goal of raising awareness for the arts in Renton and the objectives of the City of Renton Arts and Culture Master Plan. The 2015 recipients include Allied Arts of Renton, Arts Unlimited, BestFest, Rainier Chorale, Renton FilmFrenzy, Renton Civic Theater, and the Renton Annual Art Show.

The grants are made possible by funding from 4Culture, the cultural services agency for King County. 4Culture is committed to making the region stronger by supporting citizens and groups who create arts and cultural opportunities for residents and visitors.

The Renton Municipal Arts Commission was formed in August 1965 and acts in an advisory capacity to city government in connection with the artistic and cultural development of the city, and as stewards of the City of Renton art collection. The Commission receives an annual budget from the City of Renton as well as grants and gifts to support its mission connecting people with arts and culture within the Renton community.
