Grants for the Arts.
White, Virginia P.
Support for work in the arts is examined, noting the specific ways of obtaining this support from both the public and private sectors. The major sources of information on grants and grantsmanship are listed, including libraries and their resources, professional associations, workshops, institutes, subscription information services, news media, programs, and catalogs. A section on government support of the arts contains a history of how government support developed, the kinds of programs that provide arts funding through selected government agencies, and listings of state and local programs. Similar sections provide information sources about support of the arts by foundations and corporations. A section on applications offers guidelines on what to do before, during, and after writing individual and organizational proposals. Six appendixes list state and jurisdictional arts agencies, state education agency arts directors/coordinators, state humanities committees, reference collections operated by the Foundation Center, regional cooperating collections, acronyms used in arts grantsmanship, and the regional offices of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
