On March 16, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) awarded grants to 22 applicants representing eight counties for a total of $60,155 in funding. This includes 20 Artistic Support for Individual Artists & Culture Bearers grants for $57,155, and two Pandemic Relief for Working Artists & Culture Bearers grants for $3,000.

SEMAC is the State Arts Board-designated granting authority for local/regional arts producing and sponsoring organizations and disburses funds allocated for this purpose by the Minnesota State Legislature. The SEMAC region includes the counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, and Winona.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
