$250 Rent Reimbursemet Grant

The Foxboro Cultural Council has granted the Art Association's application to reimburse its monthly rental expense during 2012. Because the Boyden Library is undergoing reconstuction, the Foxboro Art Association had to move its meeting place down the street to St. Mark's Episcopal Church. But, as a consequence, it incurs a $25 rental fee each month that it meets. These meetings are free and open to the public -- not just the members. And since the Art Association already pays professionals to perform at these meetings and to inform the audience about different aspects of their art, the Association felt these meetings enriched the whole community. Accordingly, it was felt that this new expense warranted community support. The Foxboro Cultural Council has agreed and has gramted reimbursement for ten meetings to be held this year. The Foxboro Cultural Council is a local agency supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, aimed at helping support local arts projects. We are very grateful.
