Main Line Art Center is pleased to announce that it has been selected to receive a prestigious grant from PNC Arts Alive for On the Road with Arts Alive, an exciting year-long project beginning next fall taking art “to the streets.” From September 2011-September 2012, the Arts Alive Mobile will make 2-3 spontaneous and scheduled stops per month at school and community events to engage children in free art activities led by Street Squad Artists. Participants will also have an opportunity to contribute to a collaborative art project and win exciting prizes and discounts. Scholarships distributed through On the Road with Arts Alive are sponsored by PECO.
PNC Arts Alive is a five-year, $5 million investment from The PNC Foundation that supports visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement. Only twenty-six arts organizations in the Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey region were selected for bold thinking around increasing arts access and engagement.
