City alters art grants; offers free workshop

        The City of Cincinnati has revamped its individual artist grant program. Award amounts have been increased, the grant period has been lengthened and the application form shortened.

        Awards are available to artists in all disciplines.

        Applications for the 2002-04 grant period are available to Cincinnati residents age 18 and older. Application deadline is Feb. 15.

        A free grant-writing workshop will be 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the first floor conference room of Two Centennial Plaza (805 Central Ave.) Registration is required. For workshop information and registration call 352-6146 by Tuesday.
