The Macon-Bibb County Commission unanimously approved Macon Arts Alliance to be the designated local arts agency for Macon-Bibb County.
The resolution, sponsored by Commissioner Al Tillman and Commissioner Elaine Lucas, was approved at the first regular meeting of the commission last night.
The resolution states that as Macon-Bibb county's local arts agency, Macon Arts Alliance may "operate on its behalf in providing planning, financial support services, and development for arts organizations and artists in our community.
Those designations enabled Macon Arts Alliance to leverage federal, state, and private grant monies, provide cultural planning services to the community, and offer professional development services to local arts organizations and artists.
