New Orleans, LA – The NOLA Artist Incubator is the recipient of a 2022 Beautification Grant from Keep Louisiana Beautiful! The Incubator has been selected to receive a grant in the sum of $2,700 in support of the organization’s belief in the power of art to transform spaces. Through their mission; providing education, community outreach, and an Artist-in-Residence program, the NOLA Artist Incubator is committed to building a creative network of makers for a more sustainable New Orleans.
