ARTworks in Beaufort awarded $10,000 grant

ARTworks, a community arts center in Beaufort, has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.

The money will be matched with community funds and used to support the organization's "Bridging Cultures & Generations Through Music" initiative, which aims to bring artists to the area to share their knowledge and skills.

ARTworks hopes to bring two African American musicians to perform and teach as part of the program. Classical violinist Chelsey Green is scheduled to visit, and the organization is in talks with blues artist Guy Davis, according to a news release.
