Arts Commission Releases Two New Monographs

The Oregon Arts Commission announces publication of two new monographs, Arts Build Communities, which highlights twenty-eight Arts Build Communities projects, undertaken across the state between January and December, 2010; and  Proficiency in the Arts and Beyond: Arts Learning in Oregon, which highlights Oregon-based best practices and notable accomplishments in arts education, and profiles eight individuals and organizations making a positive impact in their educational community.

The Commission created the Arts Build Communities program in Oregon in 1996, using federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts to better connect the arts with issues important to Oregonians: downtown revitalization, small business development, community and folk traditions and projects engaging youth.  The 2010-funded projects benefited more than 300,000 people in Oregon.
