(Pinedale) — The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is able to continue its arts performances and educational programs, thanks in part to a grant from the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation. The foundation has awarded a $7,500 grant to the council to help support its 2007-2008 season of arts education programs and to help expand the council’s summer and winter programs.
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is the only provider of continual arts programming in Sublette County. Through its arts programs, the council presents all forms of music, dance, theatre, visual and literary arts to community members of all ages, from youth to senior citizens.
“We are pleased to be able to support the Pinedale Fine Arts Council through this grant, funded by our charitable arm, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation,” said Larry Elcock, Rocky Mountain Power customer and community manager. “We know that the arts education effort of the council is very important to the Pinedale area and is most deserving of this grant.”
“We are thrilled to receive this very generous grant from the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation,” said Dana Tully, Pinedale Fine Arts Council executive director,. “The arts council expanded its programming in the past few years and our cost of doing business has increased significantly. This grant helps ensure the quality of our programming and artist residencies we present to Sublette County residents of all ages.” Furthermore, Pinedale Fine Arts Council will use the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation funds to strengthen its existing programming and help fund staff and artist and advertising fees.
