Nine arts groups across Kansas will get state grants to support their work.

The Creative Arts Industries Commission announced Thursday that it was awarding nine grants worth about $350,000. The largest grant was $75,000 for restoration of the Gray’s Studio in St. John.

It was the second round of grants from the commission this year, following eight grants for a total of $58,400 awarded in July.

Kansas Labor Secretary Lana Gordon, who is the commission’s chairwoman, says the projects chosen are partnerships between arts, economic development and government organizations.

Grants awarded in July were the first state arts funding after a two-year break that began when Gov. Sam Brownback stopped funding for the Kansas Arts Commission, which no longer exists.

My taxes are going up and the politicians are giving money away as it it was candy.
