UTICA, N.Y. – Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute has been awarded a $51,500 grant through the National Endowment for the Humanities for enhancements at its Museum of Art.

“This is good news for the fine arts community of Utica,” Brindisi said. “This pandemic has hit every corner of our economy and I am working hard every day to help bring our communities back. These federal funds, secured through bipartisan legislation signed by President Trump, will help support jobs and enrich our community.”

The money will be used to hire a full-time staff member and retain another part-time staff member, as well as to continue an ongoing multimedia project.

“The Museum of Art at Munson-Williams is honored to receive the NEH grant. The digital interpretation project will benefit our local visitors and community while also making our collection more readily accessible worldwide,” said MWPAI President Anna D’Ambrosio. “This is part of the Museum Education Department's long-term goal to reach broader audiences through a series of interactive, digital programs with numerous layers of accessibility and voices.”

MWPAI was one of 317 chosen to receive funding out of more than 2,300 applicants.
