Viterbo University was recently awarded more than $17,000 from the Wisconsin Arts Board and the Heartland Arts Fund.

The Arts Board Performing Arts Network grant program awarded Viterbo $12,467 to support performances in the 2001?02 Bright Star, NexStar, and Arts for Young America programs. In addition, the Heartland Arts Fund awarded $5,000 to support a three-day residency by the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company in May 2002. During its three-day residency, the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company will appear at Viterbo as part of the Bright Star Season, perform two Arts for Young America programs, and lead three dance master classes. The Heartland Arts Fund is a collaborative venture of Mid-America Arts Alliance, Arts Midwest, their member state arts agencies (Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin) with primary funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and support from private contributors.
