FREEMAN, S.D. (AP) — Sen. Tim Johnson says the National Endowment for the Arts is giving up to $150,000 to the city of Freeman to help the town design an arts and agricultural center.
The NEA grant is part of the Our Town program, which awards competitive, matching grants to support the development of arts programs in rural and urban communities across the country.
Johnson says the Freeman Arts Earth Center will host performances, shows and events. The new center will help the rural community of 1,300 off U.S. Highway 81 draw tourists.
