Supervisor Don Knabe joined over three dozen arts education groups who were grant recipients of the 2007 Knabe Arts Education Partnership Program for a reception at the Long Beach Art Museum.
Any 4th District school or non-profit organization that plans to offer a program relating to arts youth education was eligible to apply. The organizations must also currently work in the 4th District. The funding for the Arts Education Partnership Program comes directly from Supervisor Knabe’s discretionary account for funding local projects within the 4th District.
Review and selection of programs that received funding was completed by a panel of experts and professionals from various arts disciplines and backgrounds from the 4th District.
From my youth, the arts have been a personal passion of mine. Children with opportunities in arts education have a lifelong benefit. The arts enrich the lives of so many people and add to a vibrant community, said Supervisor Knabe. I am confident that this year’s grant recipients will continue our mission of providing quality arts programs for our residents.
