MARSHFIELD — Helen Connor Laird had two passions: education and the arts. Both continue to be served today by the Laird Endowment Fund for the Arts, which has distributed more than $1 million in support of the fine arts at UW-Marshfield/Wood County.
The Laird Endowment Fund for the Arts Advisory Committee is calling for proposals that support cultural and/or artistic events to be held in the 340-seat Helen Connor Laird Theater or up to 90-seat Black Box theater at UW-Marshfield/Wood County.
To be eligible events must:
—Be held in the theater(s) of the Helen Connor Laird Fine Arts Building.
—Occur between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017.
—Be organized, produced, or conducted by individuals or representatives of community groups from the area served by the UW-Marshfield/Wood County campus.
A set of complete guidelines is available by calling The University Foundation of the UW-Marshfield/Wood County at 715-384-1703, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting marshfield.uwc.edu/community/foundation and clicking on “Laird Fund Proposal.”
All proposals are due Feb. 1, 2016, to The University Foundation. The Laird Fund for the Arts Advisory Committee will determine the allocation of funds and notify authors of proposals of its decisions by March 16.
