- Artpark & Company announces a grant award totaling $49,500 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.

"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."
âNYSCA 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 Artpark & Company will play a vital role in the renewal of our state's economy and creative ecosystem,â said Mara Manus, Executive Director, NYSCA. âOn behalf of the entire NYSCA Team, we wish to extend our sincere congratulations on your award.â
âThe Council congratulates Artpark & Company on their grant award!
