Great news! Inverted Arts has recieved another grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council of MN that is being used for the Friday Art Exploration program at Sojourner Truth Academy - see main story. This program is funded, in part, by appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State's general fund, and its arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
