In the Arts Commission’s continuing efforts to bring the arts to the community in various mediums, the Commission put out a call for original poetry pieces written by members of the community of all ages. Submitted pieces have been grouped together by theme into a tastefully designed display. It is the intention of the Commission for each grouping to be displayed inside various local businesses. One grouping is complete and the Commission is working with the Kuna Library to display it along with a flyer requesting additional poetry pieces.
Downtown Art Pads
As part of the city’s Downtown Revitalization Project, space was provided for the installation of 11 art pieces. The Kuna Arts Commission has been diligently working on 4 pieces that will encourage downtown Kuna’s walkability by drawing visitors from art pad to art pad. Currently, the 4 metal pieces are in the manufacturing stage.
The USArtists International program supports performances by American artists at important cultural festivals and arts marketplaces around the globe. To that end, grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to American dance, music, and theater ensembles and solo performers that have been invited to perform at international festivals and/or for performance engagements that represent extraordinary career opportunities anywhere in the world outside the U.S.
