The Lawrence Arts Commission will be accepting applications for its visual and performing arts grants until Friday. The maximum amount of each grant is $500.
Vicki Cummiskey, the city's communications coordinator and arts commission liaison, emphasized that the grants were not just for the visual arts, but also for drama, dance and musical performing artists.
The arts commission will look at the applications and make recommendations to the Lawrence City Commission. Cummiskey said priority will be given to groups or individuals who benefit the Lawrence community.
Applications can be sent to Lawrence Arts Commission, chair, City Hall, P.O. Box 708, Lawrence 66044.
