Waterworks receives grant

The Waterworks Visual Arts Center received a $2,000 grant from The Duke Energy Foundation to support community programming through its educational and outreach programs.
Anne Scott Clement, executive director, noted, ěThe success of the Waterworks is possible through the financial and moral assistance of foundations like The Duke Energy Foundation. This support is essential to sustain our educational programming.î
The center features a courtyard and sensory gardens, youth exhibitions, and summer classes as well as revolving exhibitions. There are year-round classes, both in-house and outreach, for adults and children, special populations, family activities, and an ever-increasing number of revolving exhibitions that highlight the works of local, regional, and sometimes national and international artists.
In addition, all fifth graders of the Rowan-Salisbury Schools visit Waterworks for annual tours and a hands-on activity (23 schools). The Center presents more than 50 classes and workshops for young people and adults, offering scholarships for art instruction.
Waterworksí educational outreach includes such programs as Family Fun Day, lectures and workshops, classes and special initiatives not only for the general public but also for local schools, the developmentally and physically disabled, at-risk children, senior citizens, and a variety of community groups.
Waterworks Visual Arts Center is located at 123 E. Liberty St. Visit www.waterworks. org for information.
