Grant awarded for public art
Seneca has been named a recipient of a $5 thousand grant that will allow for art works in public places. The grant from Hughes Investments for the purpose of community vibrancy was announced at a meeting yesterday of the organization Ten at the Top. It goes to the city and the Blue Ridge Arts Association. The art group’s vice president, Suzette Cross, says a committee will recruit artists to paint murals in the city and create other art work reflecting Seneca’s Ramcat Alley and the city’s 19th century history as a railroad-created town.
