Nine arts groups across Kansas will get state grants to support their work.

The Creative Arts Industries Commission announced Thursday that it was awarding nine grants worth about $350,000. The largest grant was $75,000 for restoration of the Gray's Studio in St. John.

It was the second round of grants from the commission this year, following eight grants for a total of $58,400 awarded in July.

Kansas Labor Secretary Lana Gordon, who is the commission's chairwoman, says the projects chosen are partnerships between arts, economic development and government organizations.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports grants awarded in July were the first state arts funding after a two-year break that began when Gov. Sam Brownback stopped funding for the Kansas Arts Commission, which no longer exists.
