The WQLN PBS Art Show and Contest project was supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA), its regional arts funding Partnership. State government funding comes through an annual appropriation by Pennsylvania’s General Assembly and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by Erie Arts & Culture.

Support for the WQLN PBS Art Show and Contest is provided in part from an Erie Arts & Culture Ignite Arts Grant, made possible by community contributions to the United Arts Fund and the Erie Arts Endowment
