ACM is honored to present $120,000 in grant funding to area art organizations. Seventeen applicants/organizations will receive funding for twenty two programs. Funding is made possible by ACM, City of Midland Hotel Motel Board and the Texas Commission on the Arts. “In the last twenty six years, ACM has distributed over $2 million in grants to area arts organizations.” said Danny Holeva, Executive Director for ACM. “It is an honor to be part of this collaboration with the City of Midland and the Hotel/Motel Tax Advisory Board as well as the Texas Commission on the Arts.”
During the ceremony, ACM will also honor fifteen local distinguished art volunteers and name one as the “Arts Volunteer for 2016.” “These volunteers make a difference in our community and there are many non-profits that depend upon these remarkable people in order to accomplish what they do.”
