DES MOINES – The Iowa Arts Council has awarded funding to the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education in Hampton, Senator Amanda Ragan reported this week. The organization will receive $5,000 to put on an Arts Education Leadership Conference that will train future leaders for local school districts and professional fine arts organizations.

In addition, Wright on the Park in Mason City will receive $2,175 for its Speakers’ Bureau to present “Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School.” This series will bring three presentations to Mason City to increase understanding and appreciation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work as an art form, the music of William Wright and its impact on the developing artistry of his son Frank Lloyd Wright, and the work of John Howe, Taliesin Fellow, architect and head draftsman for Frank Lloyd Wright.
