Georgia’s amazing arts organizations have received national recognition. The National Endowment for the Arts recently awarded grants totaling $437,000 to 20 Georgia arts organizations. These grants will fund exciting projects such as a public art series in Atlanta to honor the heroines of civil and human rights movements to the Savannah Music Festival, which presents three weeks of the world’s best musicians.
Organizations in all parts of the state and of all sizes were honored, including the Albany Symphony Orchestra for performances for rural schools in southwest Georgia and the Madison Morgan Cultural Center for their annual Chamber Music Festival. Other honorees include:
