Keeseville, NY – Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) announced today a grant award totaling $10,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector. Following New York State’s $105 million investment in the arts for FY2022, NYSCA has awarded more than $80 million since June 2021.
“Funding from NYSCA will go far in helping AARCH recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and the resulting adaptations we had to make to our programming,” said Erin Tobin, AARCH Executive Director. “Especially now, as we head into winter and a surge in the virus, this grant will give AARCH the flexibility to creatively explore new virtual programming while continuing to plan our popular summer educational workshops and tours. Thank you to Governor Hochul, the NYS Legislature, and NYSCA leadership and staff for their leadership in supporting our state’s arts and culture. Our state is lucky to have an arts council as forward-thinking and supportive as NYSCA.”
“The arts have long been a critical sector in our economy, and as we continue to rebuild a stronger New York, it’s essential we do all we can help this industry thrive once again,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “These awardees represent the best of what New York’s vibrant communities have to offer and with this funding in hand, they will be able to not only continue their creative and inspiring work, but help spur revitalization in their own backyard as well.”
“NYSCA applauds Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature for their responsive investment of $105 million for the nonprofit arts and culture sector. 2022 will continue to bring change and Adirondack Architectural Heritage will play a vital role in the renewal of our state’s economy and creative ecosystem,” said Mara Manus, Executive Director, NYSCA. “On behalf of the entire NYSCA Team, we wish to extend our sincere congratulations on your award.”
“Council congratulates Adirondack Architectural Heritage on their grant award! New York State arts and culture organizations inspire New Yorkers and cultivate community in every region,” said Katherine Nicholls, Chair, NYSCA. “Arts and culture are crucial to our state’s health, and Council recognizes the dynamic impact of NYSCA grantees on the well-being of all New Yorkers.”
