The Southwest Minnesota Arts Council Board recently awarded five arts organizations Equipment and Facilities Improvement grants. Dawson-Boyd Arts Association of Dawson was awarded $10,000 to replace a major stage curtain, the Olio Traveler, and related equipment at their Memorial Auditorium. The existing curtain was installed in 1954 and no longer able to be repaired, and its fire-retardant capabilities have diminished.
Lac qui Parle Players of Madison was awarded $3,362 to purchase new wireless microphones. Due to new FCC guidelines, the current systems will soon become illegal to operate, forcing them to seek new compliant technology.
