Felt Mansion Receives Grant To Build Outdoor Stage Venue For Concerts, Cultural Events
The Friends of the Felt Estate (Felt Mansion) have been awarded a $15,750 grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) to help construct an outdoor stage venue for concerts and other cultural events.
When the stage venue is completed, the popular Laketown Township historic mansion plans to bring a wide range of concerts and performances and will showcase the talents of Michigan artists.
“We are planning our summer concert schedule now,” said Pat Hoezee Meyer, director of Friends of the Felt Estate and project manager for Felt Mansion and Estate restoration project.
The MCACA grant requires a local match and Meyer noted, “We are very fortunate that we have many individual and corporate donors who will assist us in matching those funds.”
The new stage - a rehabilitation of an existing foundation - is expected to be completed this spring. All concert dates and info can be found at: www.feltmansion.org.
