Local arts organizations get financial boost from PAAHC
The Prescott Area Arts and Humanities Council gathered at the Phippen Museum recently to distribute $30,000 in bed tax allocations to deserving arts organizations in the Prescott area. Those receiving awards were Artist's Path, Arizona Cowboy Poets, Chalk It Up!, Elks Opera House Foundation, Mountain Artists Guild, Phippen Museum, Prescott Center for the Arts, Smoki Museum, Tsunami on the Square, Yavapai College Foundation and the Yavapai Symphony Guild.
Awards were determined through a grants panel, consisting of City of Prescott staff, Arizona Commission on the Arts staff and local community members. Applications were judged on a variety of criteria, but weighed heavily on their tourism and economic impact to the City of Prescott.
