CITY OF SALEM AND ARTISTS' ROW
The City of Salem has created a "letter of intent" to receive a possible grant from ART PLACE to update and improve Artists' Row! If selected a formal application will be filed by spring. If awarded, grant monies would be available by mid-summer. Grants from ART PLACE can range from $50K-500K.
