Dublin Arts Council has received a $25,000 grant award from PNC Arts Alive, a multi-year, $2.5 million grant initiative of The PNC Foundation. PNC Arts Alive funds innovative arts programming that engages audiences in new ways. To be selected for this prestigious grant award is a real honor, placing us in an elite group of bold thinkers with the common goal of increasing arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways.
This funding will be used to realize the exhibition and associated programming for Alfred Tibor: Hatred Doesn’t Work, a compelling exhibition of sculpture by 94-year-old Holocaust survivor Alfred Tibor. Tibor, 94, is a central Ohio treasure. Surviving the Holocaust — as a Russian POW and numerous other atrocities — he has emerged as a positive, gentle soul with the desire to spread his message “Hatred Doesn’t Work.” The exhibition, which includes free field trips for underserved schools and innovative use of technology to bring the artist to every gallery visitor, will serve as an initial project in a series of social justice-focused programming.
