United Arts Appeal Grant recipients announced for 2022

Three local organizations and two individual artists have been awarded grants from the Projects Pool Grants Program of the United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County (UAA).

In addition to providing operating support for six of the county’s larger arts organizations, the UAA makes these annual awards for artistic projects. To apply, organizations must have nonprofit status; individuals must have been Chautauqua County residents for at least one year and can work in any artistic discipline.

After being screened for eligibility and fulfillment of requirements, applications are reviewed by an advisory panel composed of artists and community leaders. Their recommendations are then reviewed for approval by the United Arts Appeal board.

United Arts Appeal member organizations are the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet, Community Music Project, 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center, Infinity Visual and Performing Arts, Lucille Ball Little Theatre of Jamestown, and Western New York Chamber Orchestra.

The United Arts Appeal is supported by Chautauqua County, local foundations, corporations, businesses, and individuals throughout the county. For more information about the UAA, including programs offered by member organizations, visit UnitedArtsAppeal.org.
