MCC receives $7,500 grant for campus art project
Muscatine Community College (MCC), one of the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, is pleased to announce it recently received an Art Project Grant in the amount of $7,500 from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
Grant funds will support the creation of a sculpture designed to highlight the Agriculture Program’s 50 plus years of excellence. A professional artist will work with college students in both the agriculture and welding programs to design and create the sculpture which will be publicly displayed on the Muscatine Community College Campus.
“We’re very excited to receive this grant and create a piece of artwork that will bring both beauty and meaning to our campus,” said Muscatine Community College President Naomi DeWinter.
“We’re equally grateful our students will have the opportunity to collaborate on this project and put some of their training to use on a sculpture that will be here for years to come.”
Funding for the Art Project Grant Program is made possible by an annual appropriation from the Iowa Legislature to the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
