Dixie State College administrators, representatives from The Center for Education, Business and the Arts (CEBA), Kanab City and Kane County, received a $15,000 donation from Zions Bank Friday to fund an annual grant program to support artists, businesses and art educators.
Zions Bank President and CEO A. Scott Anderson presented the check to DSC President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld and Kanab City Mayor Nina Laycook during a brief ceremony at the downtown St. George Zions Bank branch office.
The donation by Zions Bank will go toward funding grants to be awarded to a number of homegrown Utah artists, small business owners, and art educators who attend the annual Business of Art Seminar, which is held each November in Kanab. Officials from DSC and CEBA are currently developing the guidelines and criteria for which each grant will be awarded.
The annual Business of Art Seminar for visual artists in all disciplines is presented by Dixie State College and CEBA in an effort to educate artists and enhance their business skills. This free seminar features an exciting schedule of classes and workshops, presented by knowledgeable professionals from throughout Utah.
