$1 Million in New Grant Funding Available to Celebrate the Arts and National Parks
National Endowment for the Arts and National Park Service team up in celebration of hallmark anniversaries
WASHINGTON – “Art is the child of Nature,” said American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A new grant initiative created in partnership by the NEA and the National Park Service celebrates the intersections between the two in honor of the NEA’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and the National Park Service’s centennial in 2016.
“Imagine Your Parks” will provide $1 million in funding through the NEA Art Works grant category to projects that use the arts to engage people with memorable places and landscapes of the National Park System. The National Park System includes not only national parks, but also national historic sites, trails, rivers, seashores, landmarks and national monuments, heritage areas, preserves, battlefields, recreation areas, and more.
