Established in 1994 through the City’s Art in Public Places Program, the Culver City Performing Arts Grants Program offers grants to performing arts organizations in Los Angeles County. Under the purview of the City Council and the Cultural Affairs Commission, the Performing Arts Grant Program is designed to support arts organizations and bring distinguished cultural programming to Culver City. The amount of grant funding available is dependent upon the total deposits made into the City’s Art Fund each fiscal year. Additionally, the Performing Arts Grant Program is supported by a contribution from Sony Pictures Entertainment. The total amount available for the 2013 program will be $45,000.
