ATTLEBORO - The Attleboro Cultural Council (ACC) recognized 31 outstanding grant recipients at a recent reception held on Sunday, June 7 at the ARC of Northern Bristol County on Park Street.

A number of Attleboro residents, grant recipients, family members and cultural council members had the opportunity to learn first-hand just how ACC grants help support public programs and educational activities in the arts, sciences and humanities.

Chairwoman Anne-Marie Enderby introduced each recipient as a vital advocate for the cultural community in the area.

These exceptional Massachusetts recipients were selected from applicants in the disciplines of crafts, music, photography, dance, theatre works, poetry, history, art and sculpture/installation. The grant recipients recognized this year represent a diverse range of styles and media. A full list of the selected 2009 grant recipients is available online at www.attleboroculturalcouncil.org.

Grants are awarded from a pool of funds distributed to Attleboro by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency that supports arts and culture at the center of efforts to build stronger communities, improve the quality of education, and foster economic growth. Attleboro Cultural Council supports projects that explore local arts and history, expand education and accessibility, and celebrate diversity.

The ACC invites you to become a member of the Council. For more information, please e-mail Anne-Marie Enderby at info@attleboroculturalcouncil.org.
