SHELL LAKE, WIS. -- The Shell Lake Arts Center recently received a generous grant of $4,860 from the Wisconsin Arts Board.
Instead of typical programming this year, the contributions of the Wisconsin Arts Board will support the Shell Lake Arts Center in two ways: first, through the COVID-19 pandemic as they try to recover from the loss of our camp season and many of their events, helping carry through to their next season when regular programming can begin again, and second, by contributing to their online arts programming set to launch in just a few weeks.
In a normal year, the Shell Lake Arts Center serves an estimated 630 youth in arts programs ranging from instrumental and vocal music to theater and visual arts. Throughout its 53 year history, the Arts Center has served more than 40,000 youth and adult learners, many of whom have gone on to become professional performers, directors, recording artists, and college and university professors.
The Wisconsin Arts Board receives just pennies from taxpayers each year. These funds then pass to communities throughout the state, fostering educational, cultural, creative and commercial vitality. The Arts Center is deeply grateful for their generous contribution.
