ArtsWave has announced almost $10.4 million in grants and initiatives for Greater Cincinnati institutions, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Carol Motsinger. The largest united arts fund in the country, according to Motsinger, ArtsWave will be giving the bulk of its money to thirty-five groups, with an additional $435,000 going to sixty smaller projects and partnerships.

Grantees include the Cincinnati Art Museum, which is receiving $1,635,000; the Contemporary Arts Center, which has been promised $405,000; and the Taft Museum of Art, which will get $320,000.

ArtsWave’s president and CEO Alecia Kintner called the grants “an enviable Cincinnati tradition” that “demonstrates the community’s deep belief that the arts are essential to making our region an amazing place to live.”
