LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A card game, several original plays and a live radio show, workshops, art exhibits and field trips are among the 17 projects that will receive a total of $50,000 in 2011 Heritage Month grants. Sponsored each year by the Department of Arkansas Heritage, the grants support programs and activities planned for Heritage Month in May. Funded events will reflect this year’s theme, Conflict & Consequence: Commemorating the Civil War. Heritage Month grants are supported each year with $50,000 from the Amendment 75 conservation tax fund.

“As we are marking the 150th anniversary of the outbreak of the Civil War, Heritage Month 2011 allows all Arkansans to revisit this turning point in history,” said Cathie Matthews, DAH executive director. “The Civil War brought four devastating years to our state in terms of human and economic costs, but it also prompted us to experience a new, unified identity as “Americans” afterwards.
