St. Charles, MO – The Foundry Art Centre is proud to announce they were recently selected as one of 17 St. Louis area arts organizations awarded a prestigious grant from The PNC Foundation through the PNC Arts Alive initiative in 2012.

The award is in support of Art Carousel, a comprehensive program for children using visual arts, storytelling, music, and hands-on creation to immerse children in the world of art and creativity while reinforcing learning and discovery. The program begins with a story and evolves into an interactive journey through the arts that is as unique as each chil.

Art Carousel will be located in the Baue Family Children’s Gallery, a gallery dedicated to the exhibition of art created by youth. The new program will provide creative opportunities for children with scheduled performances in the Grand Hall. Art Carousel will help children combine literacy, social interaction and cultural diversity with sounds, images and tactile experiences.

PNC Arts Alive is a two-year, $1 million initiative from The PNC Foundation that supports visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways. This prestigious grant award was given to only 17 arts organizations in the Greater St. Louis area that were selected for bold thinking around increasing arts access and engagement.
