Ten local arts programs received city grants totaling $18,500 under Davis’ Arts Contract Program, the city announced Friday.

Applicants could request between $500 and $4,000 for a project, which must be completed in Davis by June 30, 2012.

The Civic Arts Commission reviewed 22 applications — eight more applications than in the previous year — requesting a total of $64,618.

Grants were approved for the following:

* Music at Davis Community Meals, for more than 50 concerts for Davis Community Meals;

* Nada Brahma Music Ensemble, for performances of and lectures on Indian classical music;

* Davis Art Center, for exhibitions including works by artists of different cultures around the world and demonstrations of contemporary and traditional artistic techniques;

* Book of poems, for publishing a book of poems about the history and people of Davis, written by current and past members of the community;

* Ninth annual NAMI-Yolo Sunflower Art Competition, for a communitywide contest to choose the new design for the organization’s “Seeds of Hope” sunflower seed cards;

* Davis Shakespeare Ensemble 2011, for productions and a summer project;

* Acme Theatre Company, for productions of “Servant of Two Masters” and “Double Trouble”;

* 2011 Davis Feminist Film Festival, for featuring short film by independent filmmakers and video artists from around the world at the UC Davis Consortium for Women;

* Voice of the Wood, for storytelling performances targeting school-age children and their families; and

* “Taking It To The Street,” for a community outreach project including free community classes and multiple public performances.

The Arts Contract grants, approved by the Davis City Council on Feb. 15, provide funding for an array of community-based arts programs and projects. Applications are selected for their role in fostering excellence, diversity and vitality in the arts.

“We had a very tough challenge this year, with a high number of applications and requests,” Civic Arts Commission Chairman Casey Hutchins said in a news release. “There were many very valuable and deserving projects, and we had to narrow them down to within the amount budgeted. We wish we could have done more.”

Further information about the Art Contracts Program is available through Bob Reich, civic arts coordinator, at (530) 757-5626 or breich@cityofdavis.org.
