The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (CAIC) is offering the Kansas Arts License Plates to help raise funds to invest in the creative arts industries in Kansas. The plates will be available at your local DMV office starting the week of October 27, 2014.
The entire annual fee of $50 per license plate will go directly towards funding arts programs in Kansas. To see how your donation can affect the arts in Kansas, click here for a list of grants already awarded by the KCAIC in 2014-2015.
