Staten Island arts grant deadline approaching
The February 11th deadline is approaching for the Council on the Arts and Humanities for Staten Island (COAHSI)’s annual grant round for Excellence in the Arts Awards, given to individual artists and cultural organizations.
There will be eight $1,000 awards; four for music and four for public art/performance art.
