By Hope Sally, Thompson & Bender for ArtsWestchester

Jul. 26, 2017:   ArtsWestchester invites artists and nonprofit organizations to apply for the 2018 Arts Alive Grants. Awarded annually, these grants are specifically designed to support community-based artists and emerging arts organizations.

The variety of projects that receive Arts Alive Grants each year illustrates Westchester’s artistic and cultural diversity. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

Applications are available and may be accessed electronically by visiting www.artswestchester.org/grants/arts-alive-grant-program

Janet Langsam, CEO of ArtsWestchester, said of the grants, “We are grateful to the Westchester state legislators for this program. Our goal at ArtsWestchester is to make the arts attainable to everyone. This grant is our most effective means of supporting arts activities throughout the county, spanning all communities, economic levels, and cultures. It also speaks to our mission to provide leadership, vision, and support to ensure the availability, accessibility, and diversity of the arts in Westchester.”

An independent panel comprising artists as well as business, civic, and cultural leaders will review the applications and make award recommendations to ArtsWestchester’s board of trustees. Funds are available in three categories:

•  Arts Alive Project Grant: Arts Alive Project Grants constitute the largest component of the Arts Alive funding category. These grants support community-based arts and cultural projects developed by arts organizations, groups, collectives, individual artists, and a limited number of other nonprofits that offer open-to-the public arts activities as part of their ongoing operations. First-time applicants are most competitive. Artists and unincorporated arts organizations may apply for project grants in tandem with a fiscal agent organization. Project Grant Award: $1,000 to $5,000.

•  Arts Alive Artist Grant: Arts Alive Artist Grants provide commissioning support to individual artists for the creation of new work presented in a community setting. This funding supports artist-created work rather than work created by the community under an artist's direction. However, an essential element of this funding is the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative process. Artist Grant Award: $2,500.

•  Arts Alive Arts Education Grant (formerly called Arts Partners Challenge Grant): Arts Alive Arts Education Grants provide support for partnerships between individual artists or arts organizations and Westchester public schools (grades K-12) and after-school and lifelong learning programs. Projects must focus on the exploration of art and the artistic process. ArtsWestchester encourages projects that integrate the arts into the curriculum, but curriculum integration is not required. The primary goal is to provide students of all ages with rich artistic learning experiences. Arts Education Grant Award: $1,000 to $2,500.

This year, the Arts Alive gave funding to projects that spanned across various projects, including music programming, short story writing workshops for kids, and theater performances. Additionally, cultural festivals and concert series were among the community events awarded.

Books & Culture

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
