The Musgrave Foundation has been a generous supporter of the arts and other projects which enhance the betterment of the community. Founder Dr. Jeanette L. Musgrave believed that arts inspire creativity which is vital to an engaged and thriving community. By supporting services for young children to seniors, the Springfield area is a better place to live with strong arts programs.
This December, The Springfield Regional Arts Council is honored to receive grant money to go toward arts education.
"We are always so grateful for The Musgrave Foundation's continued support," says Leslie Forrester, SRAC Executive Director. "It impacts the work we do in arts education tremendously. Our programs are stronger and reach more children because of it."
The Springfield Regional Arts Council provides art education opportunities for underserved areas and at-risk children. Through "Mini Monet," "Arts in the Park" and field trip opportunities to The Creamery, children have additional exposure to the arts of all media. During Arts in the Park, students from The Community Center spend each summer immersed in ballet, music, theater, as well as literary and visual arts. "These programs can't exist without community funding and donations," Forrester says.
