About $1.3 million in art grants have been awarded to 55 organizations and 25 individual artists across West Virginia.

The state Commission on the Arts and the Division of Culture and History announced the grants Tuesday.

More than $724,000 will provide general operating support to a dozen long-standing arts organizations.

More than $290,000 is for projects that offer arts programming to the public, and for planning and organizational development projects that strengthen West Virginia arts organizations.

An additional $105,000 will provide funding for school arts projects and tours that expose students to performing, literary and visual artists.
