Challenge America Grant
The American Mural Project (AMP) is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the only organization in the state to receive the Challenge America grant. The grant will fund an “All Our Own” mural-making project in three Connecticut schools with underserved popula- tions including the Oliver Wolcott Technical High School in Torrington. Challenge America grants support projects that extend the reach of the arts to populations that have limited access to the arts. AMP’s project with the three schools will focus on the central theme of work, which is core to AMP’s mission.
