In Their Words..
“Chautauqua Institution Arts Education is so deeply thankful for the support of the Western New York Foundation. This support came at a very important time of change and growth for CI Arts Education. In 2017, CI created a full-time Director of Arts Education position, with the goal of expanding reach and establishing firm roots to support arts education in the schools in Western New York – work that is relatively new to Chautauqua Institution. With the support of the WNY Foundation, CI has been able increase its capacity to serve thousands more students and their teachers, strengthening our relationships with area schools to enhance learning with valuable experiences in the arts. From school residencies to professional development for teachers to new field trip opportunities – the Western New York Foundation has made a large impact in CI’s ability to impact the lives of students, teachers and the community in a deep, resonant way. Thank you!!!”
