Small and mid-sized arts organizations across the state will be getting the bulk of more than $2.91 million in grants for 2014 awarded through the Indiana Arts Commission.

The Commission on Thursday announced allocations for the 2014 fiscal year to nearly 300 arts groups and individual artists.

In the Indianapolis area, they include the Harrison Center for the Arts ($13,000), Heartland Truly Moving Pictures ($19,000), Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre ($19,000) and American Pianists Association ($16,000).

In the category for larger organizations, Indianapolis Children’s Choir scored $37,000; Music For All Inc. landed $39,000; and the Indianapolis Violin Competition and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra topped the recipient list with $41,000 each.

Smaller project support grants of $5,000 and less will be going to organizations including Motus Dance Theatre, Conner Prairie Interactive History Park, and the Ronen Chamber Ensemble.

Also receiving up to $2,000 each for Individual Artist Program grants for 2014 will be 16 central Indiana artists, including dancer/choreographer Roberta Wong, Michael Burke of NoExit Performance, and Spirit & Place Festival director Pam Blevins Hinkle.
