BCAC was one of 65 schools, school districts, and arts organizations to receive an Arts-In-Education (AIE) Grant. AIE grants help fund artist residencies, performances, curriculum planning and implementation and professional development for teaching.
BCAC also received a General Operating Support Grant from SCAC. This grant program is designed to strengthen arts organizations that bring ongoing arts experiences and services to individuals, other organizations and communities throughout the state. There were 144 organizations that received a General Operating Support Grant.
The third grant BCAC received was for its Subgranting Program. Subgranting funds are allocated to local arts councils to distribute quarterly grants to organizations and artists in their region. This program is funded in part by an award from the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of The Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina.
BCAC was among a select group of nine arts council to receive subgrant funding.
In addition to the exhibit in the gallery, artwork by Hartsville-native and current Coastal Carolina student Lance "Sketchboii Lance" Rhodes will be on display in the Upstairs Gallery.
