The Board of Directors of the Kansas Arts Foundation has announced the first three recipients of its recently implemented art grants program.
The winners are:
The Community Chamber Orchestra, Morganville, $2,000; The Wichita Children’s Theater, $2,500; and The Western Music Association, Kansas Chapter and its 2013 Kansas Cowboy Poetry Contest, $2,000.
The Wichita Children’s Theater performs throughout Kansas.
Ron Wilson, a representative of the Kansas Chapter of the Western Music Association, noted the $2,000 grant would be of great assistance as that organization travels the state conducting the 2013 Cowboy Poetry Contest. The winning Kansas poet will perform at the Symphony in the Flint Hills.
