Legion Arts, located in Cedar Rapids, IA, utilized a grant from the Warhol Initiative to purchase a historic, two-story firehouse that sits adjacent to the rest of the Legion Arts facility. This additional building allows for an expanded artist residency program. Partly due to Legion Arts’ record of support from the Andy Warhol Foundation over the years, the organization was also able to leverage funds, loans and donations from other resources to facilitate the purchase of all of the buildings and cover a full restoration of the site.
