The Renton Municipal Arts Commission (RMAC) is reaching out to the Renton arts and cultural community with a funding opportunity. The Commission is currently accepting proposals for the 2013 Arts Grant Program, which will support projects that help forward the Arts Commission’s goal to facilitate the implementation of Renton’s Arts & Culture Master Plan. The Arts & Culture Master Plan was adopted by the Renton City Council in 2010 and can be viewed on the Arts & Culture Master Plan webpage at ArtsCommission.rentonwa.gov.

The Arts Commission anticipates grants of $500 to $6,000 for the 2013 Arts Grant Program. Artists and organizations promoting art for the greater Renton community can apply for funding. Applications are due Monday, February 4, 2013. Grant awards will be announced by March 12 and projects must be completed by November 30, 2013.
