Lansing Mayor Andy Schor was joined by Lansing Economic Area Partnership, the Arts Council of Greater Lansing, and recent City of Lansing Arts Impact Project and First Impressions Program awardees in announcing $140,000 in creative placemaking projects recently at Troppo in downtown Lansing.
Announcements included a $75,000 Arts Impact Project and 10 First Impressions Program grant awards totaling $65,000 to local arts and cultural organizations. The Arts Impact Grant and First Impressions Program is funded through the City of Lansing and administered by LEAP and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. “Investing in the arts is a critical piece of good economic development,” said Mayor Schor.
“These projects contribute to a vibrant, visual and culturally diverse sense of place for those who call Lansing home, and they help us welcome visitors and draw new businesses and new talent to the city. Congratulations to all the recipients and thank you to our great partners, LEAP and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing, for helping to advance these projects.”
