The NEA grant will support Arts AMaize, a series of new works, performances, public and school-based workshops, music, installations, and arts-infused parades to activate the community's main corridor, Maize Road. This project will animate spaces underserved by the arts, including regional shopping centers, big box stores, and parking lots throughout Maize. Chamber Music at the Barn and City of Maize will partner with ten local organizations from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Arts activities will help to foster an authentic, distinctive place, and will demonstrate potential patterns of development that celebrate the city's history and people. Once a rural town, Maize now has a population of 3,437, and is the fastest growing suburb of Wichita.
