Support from The Alliance for Downtown New York
The Alliance for Downtown New York has awarded 11 local arts and cultural organizations with $10,000 individual grants as part of a wide-ranging effort to support the recovery of Lower Manhattan. In recognition of the important role that arts and cultural institutions play, this latest round of grants were awarded to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, 9/11 Tribute Museum, Battery Dance Company, China Institute, Fraunces Tavern Museum, Gibney Dance, the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, Poets House, Skyscraper Museum, South Street Seaport Museum and Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation.
“China Institute made the move to Lower Manhattan with a vision to become a world-class center for education and dialogue around arts, culture, and business. The generous support from The Alliance for Downtown New York and its partners will help us continue to offer engaging programs, courses, and exhibits exploring all things China; we are honored to be recognized among this important group. I applaud the Alliance for implementing this emergency funding initiative and for its recognition that general operating support for the arts is especially important during a time of crisis.” — James Heimowitz, President, China Institute
