We thank Mayor Beth Wythe and Homer City Council members for their service and dedication to Homer’s vibrant culture, economy and government. Democracy is animated when an informed public is engaged in the issues affecting people’s daily lives. The arts contribute unique programs, settings and creative approaches that reach new and diverse participants, stimulate public dialogue about civic issues and inspire action to make change. 

Bunnell Street Arts Center is dedicated to sparking Homer’s creative ecosystem through the arts. The city of Homer Grants Program through the Homer Foundation is the lever we use to grow our base of support. A dynamic formula of complementary funding sources fuels this art center’s stability. City support is the keystone, a critical feature of every grant we write, every sponsor we attract. Private funders, especially foundations, look to the level of city support this arts center receives when making funding determinations. We’ve leveraged city support for a 400 percent return for many years.

We thank the city of Homer and the Homer Foundation for their visionary partnership in fostering our cultural and economic ecosystem.
