ArtPlace grants will bring $1.2 million to downtown L.A.

Grand Avenue and LA Live have been the focal points for arts and entertainment projects aimed at reviving downtown Los Angeles, but more grass-roots-oriented efforts in other downtown districts got a boost Tuesday with the announcement of $1.2 million in grants from ArtPlace, a national initiative to deploy culture as a community development tool. Though overseen by federal agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts, ArtPlace is funded privately by a consortium of major charitable foundations and banks. Overall, four L.A. organizations will receive $1.5 million of the $15.4 million that ArtPlace disbursed nationally to 47 recipients.
