Arts Council takes grant applications

Cheyenne, Wyoming (AP) 9-08

The Wyoming Arts Council is accepting grant applications for its Folk and Traditional Arts Mentoring Project.

The project will award four grants of $3,000 each to preserve the state’s unique artistic traditions. Previous grants have allowed recipients to teach such arts as weaving, old-time fiddle tunes and Shoshone beadwork.

The grant program this year will allow master artists to teach their skills to qualified apprentices. The apprentices must study with a master who shares a common heritage, which can be a family, ethnic, occupational, tribal, religious or geographic community. The deadline to apply for the grants is Nov. 3.
