Powerhouse gets renovation grant

The Powerhouse Community Arts Center received a $94,400 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission this week to help with the second phase of renovations for the building.

The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council worked with Oxford Mayor Pat Patterson to receive a previous grant for $100,000 from the state Arts Commission. This enabled the Arts Council to apply for a second round of funding that will be used on the interior of the Powerhouse, primarily to upgrade the technical equipment, stage and seats.

This is just a portion of the projected $500,000 in renovations that are planned for the theater space, said Wayne Andrews, director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council. (October 14, 2010, Page 1)
