The Imagine 2020 Fund, administered by Denver Arts & Venues, has upped the amount it's giving to local arts groups that fit into the city's cultural plan.
This year the fund will give $130,000 in grants of up to $7,500 each to 27 recipients selected from seventy applicants. "Funded projects further develop Denver’s creative landscape and [make] Denver’s collective vision a reality," according to a just-released statement from Arts & Venues.
