John A. Schroth Family Awards ArtWorks with Groundbreaking Grant


Last fall, ArtWorks was notified of an award of $50,000 being granted to its public art program from the John A. Schroth Charitable Trust. The group’s generosity is a significant gift during our organization’s 25th anniversary. 2021 resulted in a robust season of Stronger Together; we hired over 200 artists and completed over 20 art projects. The funding will also further our 2022 plan of public art projects. We thank the John A. Schroth Charitable Trust for allowing us to fulfill our mission of transforming people and places through investments in creativity.
