Students across Logan County are enjoying free field trips thanks to funding provided by the Clay Center. The Center is using all of the proceeds from ticket sales of its three sold-out December concerts by Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. to offer one-time free admission to schoolchildren in Logan County.
The $30,000 given by the Center can be used for art and science museum gallery visits, films, planetarium shows and even tickets to “Classroom in the Clay Center” performances.
The Center had first planned to use a portion of the proceeds from Landau’s originally-scheduled performance to fund field trips for Logan County schools. After two more shows sold out, Clay Center President and CEO Judy Wellington said the Center reevaluated the situation and saw potential for a greater gift.
“When we looked at the numbers and realized how close we were to funding a trip for every student, we decided to put 100% of the net proceeds into an access fund for Logan County schools,” she said. “The money will stay in the fund until it has been used and all students in Logan County have had the opportunity to experience hands-on art and science education at the Center.”
