WESLEYANThe Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded Wesleyan University’s Center for the Artsa grant of $750,000 to be used over 3 1/2 years in continued support of the development of new work by a range of diverse artists, interdisciplinary collaborations, co-teaching initiatives and arts-based campus-wide projects of theCreative Campus Initiative, as well as the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (ICPP), the University's post-graduate program. $500,000 of the award will be matched by $1 million to be raised to build a dedicated endowment to sustain continued innovative cross-disciplinary Creative Campus activities, ensuring that the performing arts continue to be organically integrated into non-arts areas at Wesleyan. With support from Wesleyan alumni, the fundraising campaign to meet this challenge is being launched on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Center for the Arts during the 2013-2014 season.
