Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4), along with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced the release of $100,000 in grant funding to support the Milwaukee Ballet Company.
This grant was awarded as a part of NEA's Our Town initiative designed to promote creativity that unites communities through the arts.
The Milwaukee Ballet Company will use this award to fund a new building through their Harmony Initiative project, providing additional office and performance space.
"Since their first performance in 1970, the Milwaukee Ballet Company has been a powerful cultural symbol in our city," said Rep. Moore. "It is my hope that this funding will help the Milwaukee Ballet remain significant in our community and inspire others through the arts."
