The Kingston Bee-Line is a finalist for ArtPlace America’s 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund!!!!

On June 6, 2017, ArtPlace America announced that Hudson Valley Bee Habitat’s Kingston Bee-Line is one of 70 finalists for the 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund (NCPF). ArtPlace selected these 70 proposals from 987 applications, making HVBH’s project one of just 7% of the projects across the country to make this cut.

Investing money in communities across the country in which artists, arts organizations, and arts and culture activity help drive community development change across 10 sectors of community planning and development: agriculture and food; economic development; education and youth; environment and energy; health; housing; immigration; public safety; transportation; or workforce development.
