State awards children’s museum arts and technology grant. 

LUDINGTON – Sandcastles Children’s Museum has been awarded a grant of $3,600 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 561 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2019 funding.

Organizations receiving a MCACA grant award are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. Sandcastles Children’s Museum receives significant funding and volunteer support from our local community.

The grant will help fund four arts and technology workshops for children ages 5 through 14, said Kristin Korendyke, museum executive director. The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) workshops will include: stop motion animation, chroma key video, digital photography, and Adobe Photoshop.

“Sandcastles is proud to be able to offer workshops with this kind of educational value with the help of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs,” Korendyke said.

The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals.

“This ensures tax payers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences,” Korendyke said.

A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by contacting MCACA at (517) 241-4011, or by visiting the MCACA website at
