Partners in Preservation

This is only tangentially arts related, but often times the humanities, arts, and preservation all overlap so we wanted to mention this fun project.  Partners in Preservation has $1 million in preservation grants to give away, via the generosity of American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  There are 24 competing organizations–everything from Mt. Vernon to Dumbarton Oaks Park to the Greenbelt Theatre.  You have been asked to vote (up to once a day) through May 10 for the historic place you think is most deserving of a grant.  The winner is guaranteed their full grant request, and the rest of the money will be distributed to the other organizations at the recommendation of an advisory committee.  Feel especially strong about a certain place?  You can win it more points by using the site’s hashtag in a tweet or instagram.  Check it out and vote today!
