$300,000 Grant to fund New Arts Center

Downtown Hastings will soon have a new anchor for the arts, thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development.

"The Lark" is a program that will provide arts programming for people of all ages and economic levels in the community. The basis will be the "The Listening Room" performances, which will be twelve throughout the year, of acoustic artists, traveling from all over the country, and the programs will build on that," explained Adams County Convention and Visitors Bureau staff member Kaleena Fong.
