McGroarty Arts Center in Tujunga has recently been awarded grants from the Weingart Foundation and Los Angeles County Arts Commission to support its capacity building efforts, which in turn improves the Center’s services.
The $15,000 Weingart Foundation grant represents a new source of funding for the Center. The Weingart Foundation makes grants to assist organizations that work in the areas of health, human services, and education. The Foundation also funds activities that benefit the general community and improve their quality of life. McGroarty Arts Center continually provides greater access to the arts for those who are economically disadvantaged and underserved.
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission has supported McGroarty for a number of years, funding the summer concert programs, the expansion of the McGroarty ceramics program, and a variety of other events and activities. Through the Organizational Grant Program, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission awarded McGroarty $18,300 over two years. The mission of McGroarty Arts Center is to provide access to the arts through in-depth arts instruction and experiences. Affordable or free multidisciplinary arts instruction is offered to at-risk youth, children, and families, as are performances, exhibitions, and events that engage the greater public. The Center is a venue for artists to present their work, while preserving the legacy of John Steven McGroarty and his historic home.
