Last month the Florida Council on Arts and Culture met at the Lyric Theater in Stuart. The purpose of the gathering was to review cultural facilities matching-grant applications from across the Sunshine State for 2019-20. This was a big deal for the council to hold the meeting in Stuart—and a great way to promote the arts on Treasure Coast. Usually the group meets in more metropolitan areas.
According to an article in TCPalm, council members decided which grants would make it to the secretary of state and, ultimately, the Legislature for consideration. Sessions were open to the public.
Our local arts scene gets a boost, too. The council was scheduled to visit local cultural venues in Martin and Palm Beach counties including The Fish House Art Center and Gallery Port Salerno and House of Refuge Museum and Art Gallery, in Stuart.
