The Worcester Arts Council has announced 56 local artists, organizations and institutions will receive nearly $113,000 in grant funding in 2016.
The recipients, to be announced at the Tuesday, Jan. 26, City Council meeting, include projects in poetry, film, music, dancing, multimedia, science, art and education.

Traynor said, “Worcester is fortunate to have such a wealth of creative talent within it, and these noteworthy projects illustrate the vibrant cultural community that can be found throughout Worcester.
“These projects and their success will play a vital and important role in enhancing the strength of our community through art and creative expression.”
