NEA Grant Adds to Growing Partnership with Juxtaposition Arts

size_550x415_logoCMYK.pngThe Regents of the University of Minnesota received a grant of $35,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) that will support the development of design curricula and educational programming targeted to high school students. This project is a partnership between the College of Design, the Department of Landscape Architecture, and Juxtaposition Arts, a youth design education organization. It will include as many as five courses taught in an underserved North Minneapolis neighborhood and will introduce approximately 150 youth to new pathways for college and design professions.

"The NEA is proud to support these exciting and diverse arts projects that will take place throughout the United States," said Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa. "Whether it is through a focus on education, engagement, or innovations, these projects all contribute to vibrant communities and memorable opportunities for the public to engage with the arts."
