The Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council is pleased to announce that grants of $103,682 from the Arts and Culture Heritage Fund have been awarded to nineteen organizations in the region. This fund was created by the people of Minnesota to support the arts and preserve our heritage. The Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, passed by the voters in November, 2008, created new resources for land conservation, water conservation, parks and the Arts.

Three organizations in Nicollet County were awarded grants. The Minnesota Over 60 Band received $6,000 and they will perform in parades and concerts in Minnesota cities during their 2014 season. The Rock Bend Folk Festival received $4,000 and they will sponsor a two-day festival featuring local and regional Minnesota folk musicians on two stages, and local artists displaying work on September 6-7, 2014, at Minnesota Square Park, St. Peter. South Central College received $4,000 and they will sponsor Iny Asian Dance Theater, led by internationally renowned Hmong artist Iny Mai Vang, to perform at the Global Connections Conference, Oct. 9.
