CALL FOR ART!

"Lost & Found"
Entry Deadline: 4/2/18

Juried by artist, Marie Bukowski, Director & Professor, School of Art, Kent State University, and organized by Standing Rock Cultural Arts, Kent, OH.


Concept: This exhibition will explore the ways that culture, religion, and politics affect current day society. Understanding that differences in religion and politics have evolved over time and vary between cultures, this exhibition invites artists to consider cultural constructions and asks “How do we receive messages about our contemporary global society and how are we affected within our local communities?”

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED OUR RECENT CAPITAL CAMPAIGN!    We were able to raise $6,800.00 toward the Wheelchair Access Ramp including the $2,500 match from the Kent Rotary Foundation.  We shall continue to raise funds for this effort until the construction is actually complete, hopefully in June 2018.  Feel free to make a tax deductible donation here.  Thanks again!




 

 


 

Ohio Arts Council Sustainability Grant

Standing Rock Cultural Arts is proud to announce that we have received a Sustainability Grant from the Ohio Arts Council for our future operations and programming.

The Sustainability Grant will help cover our operational expenses for fiscal years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.  We are honored to be one of the selected arts organizations to receive funding for this competitive grant.

This is what the OAC Panel said in their evaluation of our application:

Panel Meeting Summary Comments:

a. small-sized but powerhouse organization
b. strong letters of support that demonstrate their community value
c. good relationship with city and Kent State University
d. articulate definition of artistic success that directly relates to mission
e. standard yet solid planning and evaluation methods
f. some written evaluation responses were lengthy; encourage addition of quantitative response
items and data-gathering
g. additional in-kind support beyond volunteer hours would have strengthened application

OAC Sustainability Grants

The Sustainability program provides general operating support to arts and cultural organizations across Ohio that make important contributions to the health and vitality of our communities. Sustainability grants ensure that public support of the arts continues to play an integral role in celebrating the rich past and sustaining the vibrant future of Ohio’s cultural legacy through flexible and reliable funding for annual arts programming. A rigorous application and review process assures citizens and legislators that Sustainability grantees use public funds resourcefully and responsibly. Organizations must demonstrate excellent artistic, educational and cultural value; responsiveness to their community; credible planning and evaluation strategies; and a high level of financial and managerial accountability. When these characteristics are in balance, organizations are well-positioned to provide Ohioans with diverse opportunities to participate in the arts and enjoy their benefits throughout their lives.

Thank you for supporting the arts!

Jeff Ingram/Executive Director

Greetings,

Standing Rock Cultural Arts is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) art and education organization based in downtown Kent. Our mission is to Build Community Through The Arts.

We nurture the spirit of creativity by providing opportunities for children and the public to explore the arts. We do this by providing opportunities for artists to bring their work to the community through exhibitions, poetry readings, workshops, theatrical productions, music performances, festivals, public art projects and special events.

In an effort to help support these community-enriching activities, we are initiating a new, low-priced, tax-deductible Membership Plan in 2011 to supplement our other funding. We have student memberships available for only $5 per year and a variety of plans to fit individuals, couples, families, and even businesses! All members will receive special benefits that are not generally available to the public. Please read below to view the current benefits of our membership plan. We look forward to adding additional benefits as they become available and we invite any businesses to partner with us on discounts. Of course, we will also continue, as always, to accept any tax-deductible charitable contributions in order to assist our mission of Community through the Arts.

Again, your membership and/or contribution is tax-deductible and greatly appreciated! Without the generous support of our donors and future members, we would not be able to offer the diverse quality cultural arts programming that we offer continuously throughout each year. There is no greater compliment to our organization about how valued our programming is to our community and area than your ongoing support! Checks may be made payable to:
