The Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, passed by Minnesota voters on Nov. 4, 2008, has made it possible for the Region 2 Arts Council to award $7,003 in Artist Mentor Grants to young artists in our region.

Region 2 Arts Council Artist Mentor grants were awarded to eight 8th-12th grade student artists to mentor with a professional artist or to attend a camp or workshop in their arts discipline.

The next Artist Mentor Grant deadline is Dec. 1.
