Citi Awarded Facilities Project Grant
Posted 28 November 2011 12:00 AM by Citi
Citi Performing Arts Center was proud to be a part of the celebration last week when Governor Deval Patrick awarded $7.4 million in Cultural Facilities Fund grants to the Massachusetts' arts and culture sector. Citi Performing Arts Center is one of the 54 organizations receiving grants to support building projects for nonprofit arts, heritage and science organizations.
Citi Center will receive a $250,000 grant from MCFF to repair and replace theater infrastructure, including the HVAC system in the Wang, exterior repointing of the Shubert (see the project in progress here), and electrical, life, and fire safety systems in both theaters. Preserving decades of history of the 85 year old Wang Theatre and 100 year old Shubert Theatre may not be cheap, but we think it's worth it and we're glad that The Kresge Foundation and Massachusetts Cultural Council agree.
