Iowa Arts Council’s “Office on the Road” May 15 in Le Mars

(DES MOINES, Iowa)—The Iowa Arts Council will take its “Office on the Road” to Le Mars May 15, 2008, to offer assistance and guidance with arts-related project planning and grant programs to Iowans.  

IAC staff will hold office hours 1-5 p.m. at the Le Mars Art Center, 200 Central Avenue SE in Le Mars. Constituents interested in meeting with IAC staff should contact Sarah Ekstrand at sarah.ekstrand@iowa.gov or 515-281-4657 to schedule 20-minute appointments.

“When we made the decision to take our office on the road the first time last December, we believed it would be well received by constituents – and we were right,” IAC Administrator Mary Sundet Jones said. “In many cases, we met constituents who could not travel to Des Moines but still needed that one-on-one interaction with our staff about project planning and grant programs.”

IAC will announce additional “Office on the Road” dates and locations as they are confirmed.
