for Arts Education
Center for Arts Education (CAE) has received a $12 million grant
from the Annenberg Foundation and a $2.5 million commitment from
the New York City Board of Education to extend the restoration
of the arts in the City’s public schools.
The two grants form the nucleus of CAE’s new five-year, $21.5
million campaign to bring arts education to all children in City
schools. The campaign will identify and disseminate model programs,
expand internship and professional development programs, foster
parental involvement and promote school partnerships with business
and cultural organizations.
The Annenberg Foundations original $12 million grant in 1996 has
been matched over the last five years with an additional $24 million
in public and private funds. “The City now commits $75 million
per year to Project ARTS so arts teachers can be hired and arts
organizations can work hand-in-hand with our public schools,”
said Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. “The Center’s program has become
a catalyst for restoring arts education throughout the entire
public school system.”
restoration of the arts through Project ARTS would not have been
possible without the Center’s work,” said Chancellor Harold Levy
who announced the Board of Education’s $2.5 million commitment
over the next five years that will “assist it [CAE] in identifying
and supporting exemplary arts education initiatives from within
our schools and share them with others in the system.”
CAE will implement six key programs, including Parents as Arts
Partners Grants for approximately 500 schools to support family
