Dinniman announces arts grants
State Sen. Andy Dinniman announced last week that 12 arts organizations and programs in Chester County will receive $84,516 in total state funding.
“Our arts and cultural organizations are important to the education of our children and greatly add to the quality of life for the rest of us in Chester County,” Dinniman said. “When you also consider what the arts add to local economies across our county and commonwealth, it is crucial that we continue to support them in their efforts and programs.”
