Grants for Youth Art Programs offered in Twentynine Palms
 
The Public Arts Advisory Committee (PAAC) of the City of Twentynine Palms is offering small grants to support Youth and The Arts programs in 2017.
 
The PAAC has a fund of $4,000 for Youth and The Arts programs being conducted in 2017. Individual grants of up to $1,000 are available, depending on the scope of the program and availability of funds. 
 
Deadline for submitting grant applications is Monday, February 6. Grant awards will be announced the first week in April.
 
The PAAC’s goal is to nurture, enhance, and encourage the community’s participation in the arts by providing financial support for art programs for the youth of Twentynine Palms and MCAGCC.
 
Organizations, individuals, groups, clubs, or businesses that benefit the youth of Twentynine Palms are invited to apply. The PAAC particularly encourages cooperative ventures among cultural groups to provide programs that give youth experience in a variety of the visual and performing arts, including art, music, dance, theatre, and writing.
 
Complete guidelines for grant applications are available on the Art in Public Places page at www.29palms.org. The application process is relatively simple, requiring a brief written proposal describing the proposed arts program.
 
Grant applications can be submitted to the PAAC City liaison Jon Beard via email at jbeard@29palms.org on or before the first Monday in February. For questions or more information, contact Jon Beard at (760) 910-3888, available Monday through Thursday.

Artwork due Jan. 6 at Twentynine Palms Visitor Center & Gallery

Winter Blues: Desert Moods and Shades” is the theme for the winter Art in Public Places exhibition at Twentynine Palms Visitor Center & Gallery and Chamber of Commerce, 73484 29 Palms Hwy. in downtown Twentynine Palms. The exhibition will be on display January 13 to March 31, 2017.

Desert artists are invited to submit an original piece of art for possible inclusion in the group exhibition. Artwork must be delivered to the visitor center gallery on In/Out day, Friday, Jan. 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Artists with work in the previous show also should pick up their artwork on this day. Artists unable to make this time can request an alternate delivery time by calling (760) 367-3445 any weekday prior to Jan. 6.

The theme “Winter Blues: Desert Moods and Shades” is meant to create an exhibition of artwork showcasing winter, thereby disproving the maxim of “no seasons,” as the desert is definitely different in winter. The colors of winter in the desert are dramatically different from those of hot summer days. And while winter skies bring the hope of rain that will nourish spring wildflowers, they also bring short days and seasonal moods.

Artwork must address the theme and can express it in painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, or three-dimensional work. All work must be ready to hang with professional wire or mount on a pedestal, must be offered for sale, and must be suitable for viewing by the public.

An opening reception is planned for Friday, Jan.13, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., with live music and refreshments.

The visitor center gallery is open daily at 73484 29 Palms Hwy. at the corner of Desert Queen Avenue in downtown Twentynine Palms. Art in Public Places exhibitions are hosted by the Public Arts Advisory Committee (PAAC) of the City of Twentynine Palms.

For questions or more information, contact PAAC liaison Jon Beard at (760) 367-7562 or email: jbeard@29palms.org.
