Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney announced that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) will invest in four Hudson Valley organizations including $65,000 for the Storm King Art Center, $30,000 for the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, $15,000 for the Aquila Theatre Company and $20,000 for the Katonah Museum of Art. These investments will help support the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, expand performances and art education in Katonah and support the world-renowned Storm King Art Center.

“These are strategic investments in jobs and the Hudson Valley economy, helping to revitalize our cities and towns by attracting tens of thousands of tourists to the region every year,” Maloney said.

“We are very excited to build on our success in engaging millennials, and we are very grateful to the NEA for supporting this important work,” said Maggie Whitlum, HVSF executive director.

In total, the NEA is supporting more than 900 organizations in 47 states. Organizations interested in applying for a NEA grant are encouraged to visit
