The financial picture is a little rosier today for capital region arts organizations.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced $20 million in grant funding Tuesday for the state’s cultural and arts institutions, including a combined $308,978 headed to eight Dauphin County organizations.
“We applied because we had a tremendous loss, in that we couldn’t do anything to raise money while we were in the situation of still having to pay expenses,” said Alice Anne Schwab of the Susquehanna Art Museum (SAM), which received $25,000.
“Our utility costs are huge—we pay over $5,000 a month for utilities alone,” she said.
