Norte Maar’s Dance at Socrates is funded in part by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation through a partnership with Socrates Sculpture Park.
Free Kids Art receives funding from the Local Arts Support program administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) funded by the Decentralization Program of New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).
