  2. The De Soto Arts Council will use its roughly $4,800 dollar grant to develop an arts center in its city hall. 
  3. Johnson County Community College will use its $5,000 to further develop its K-12 teacher training in arts integration.
  4. The Kansas City Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art will use its $10,000 grant to enhance its gallery and its art therapy.
