Linda Marston-Reid, Executive Director of Art Mid-Hudson (formerly The Dutchess Country Arts Council), and Paul Tesoro, Chairperson of the Board, discuss the many ways that Arts Mid-Hudson re-grants New York State funds and local donations to local artists in Dutchess, Ulster, and Orange counties. Grants aid visual arts, theater, arts education, music, performances of the written word, and community events. All grant proposals receive a peer review, which is helpful even to projects that do not get funded. The proposals supported also become one of the reasons for visitors to come to the Mid-Hudson region, where the arts are among the attractions.
