Cuyahoga County residents invited to vote for six big ideas in our community
Cuyahoga Arts & Culture invites residents of Cuyahoga County to help decide which two large-scale arts or culture projects will receive up to $150,000 each through its new Creative Culture Grants program.
Voters can select their top three choices from among the six finalists, listed on the CAC website at cacgrants.org/creative-culture-grants-finalists.php.
“We launched this program to both bring new, creative projects to our community and to let our community have a say in which projects would receive public funds,” said Karen Gahl-Mills, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s executive director. “The six finalist projects embody the great creativity of our region’s arts and culture organizations and artists, and we encourage all county residents to get involved in the public vote.”
Residents in Cuyahoga County may vote from Feb. 1-20, in two ways:
- Online at www.cacgrants.org/vote until Feb. 20 at 11:59 p.m.
- By mail until Feb. 15 at 4:30 p.m. Paper ballots are available for download at www.cacgrants.org/creative-culture-grants.php, or by calling 216-515-8303. Paper ballots must be delivered in person or by U.S. mail to Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s offices (1501 Euclid Avenue, Suite 407, Cleveland, Ohio, 44115) by Feb. 15 at 4:30 p.m.
Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s Board of Trustees is expected to approve and announce the winning projects during its regular meeting on Feb. 25, and the projects will take place between March 2013 and August 2014.
