PNC Bank will distribute $1 million over the next four years to help fund arts groups in the St. Louis region.
The grants, part of PNC's Arts Alive funding initiative, have a larger focus than just keeping organizations afloat in the short term. They aim to inspire lasting programs that reinvigorate arts organizations.
Since 2011, the Arts Alive program has distributed $2 million to established theater companies, museums and dance companies. Recipients include Dance St. Louis, Opera Theater of St. Louis and The Muny.
