Smullen Congratulates 2024 NYSCA Grant Award Recipients and Highlights Ongoing Art Projects

Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R,C-Mohawk Valley and the Adirondacks) is proud to announce and congratulate all 14 organizations and artists in Assembly District 118 who collectively received $907,000 worth of grant awards through the New York State Council on the Arts. This program helps support organizations and artists throughout the state, especially those in rural areas and communities still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Congratulations to all the organizations and artists from our community who received grant award funding for projects this year,” said Smullen. “Arts and creativity are vital to our community’s economy, culture and sense of identity in the Mohawk Valley and our entire state. Thanks to this funding, the Adirondack Historical Association will receive support for its museum, the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts will receive support for its theatre commissions, visual arts and state and local partnerships, the Caroga Arts Collective for its music program, Historic Fort Plain, Inc. for architecture and design and so much more. I am very excited to see these projects take off and see these remarkable art programs continue to enrich and breathe life into our district for years to come!”
