National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa announced on April 23 that Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School is one of 817 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. Special Music School is recommended for a $65,000 grant to support the school’s music program.

A groundbreaking K-12 public school for musically gifted children, Special Music School is a unique public/private partnership between the New York City Department of Education, which funds the school’s academics, and Kaufman Music Center, which funds the music program through private donations.

Acting Chairman Shigekawa said, “The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support these exciting and diverse arts projects that will take place throughout the United States. Whether it is through a focus on education, engagement or innovation, these projects all contribute to vibrant communities and memorable opportunities for the public to engage with the arts.”

In August 2012, the NEA received 1,547 eligible applications for Art Works grants requesting more than $80 million in funding. Art Works grants support the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts and the strengthening of communities through the arts. The 817 recommended NEA grants total $26.3 million and span 13 artistic disciplines and fields. Applications were reviewed by panels of outside experts convened by NEA staff and each project was judged on its artistic excellence and artistic merit.
