The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY AUG 25, 2020

The State of Florida’s Division of Cultural Affairs has awarded a grant to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for the 2021 Fiscal Year. The $48,316 grant will support main stage and educational programming at the arts hall. “We are so grateful for this continued support from Florida’s Department of State at a time when it is needed most," says Executive Director Mary Bensel. "Many people do not realize that the Van Wezel, a city-owned facility, has not received much-needed PPP funding or other support from the CARES Act at this time. Due to the ongoing and unforeseen impact of COVID-19 on the performing arts industry, support from the Division of Cultural Affairs is crucial for the future operations of many arts organizations such as the Van Wezel. Our remaining staff is hard at work as we plan for a safe reopening of our main stage hall, as well as providing new and exciting options for entertainment in the interim. We miss our patrons, our ushers, our IATSE crew and everyone that makes this theatre so special on a daily basis. The performing arts are absolutely essential, and we can’t wait to bring back the tradition of world class entertainment to our stage.”
