PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) has announced grant funding to bring more art to Pittsburg’s downtown district.

The DAB is offering up to 50/50 matching funds, not to exceed $1,000, for murals in the downtown district and has allocated $2,500 for this year’s grant cycle.

“The Downtown Advisory Board is excited to continue its commitment to arts in the downtown district,” says DAB Chair Sydney Anselmi. “Public art enriches the experience of both our residents and visitors to our community. Each little area we can brighten with public art easily brightens the areas surrounding it, and the goal is one day we have a colorful, vibrant, downtown corridor filled with art, businesses, and enriching experiences.”

Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until August 2023 or until funds run out. Applications will be considered at the regularly-scheduled Downtown Advisory Board meetings, held on the third Monday of each month at City Hall.
