Waterford School District receives grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs

The Waterford School District is the recipient of a grant of $2,675 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 494 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2015 funding. This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant program, administered by the Anton Art Center.

Waterford Mott High School students, advised by Ceramics Instructor George Bowersox, will design and create an analemmatic sundial, which will be installed on the Charter Township of Waterford’s campus. This will become a permanent exhibition on the Township’s campus for the enjoyment of residents year-round. Waterford Township will provide in-kind services for the installation of the sundial.

The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.
