Each year the Arts Council works to expand our programs and services. Our goal is to reach every resident from the youngest child to senior citizens with programs that enrich, engange and enhance our lives. This mission has helped us lauch projects in partnership with local artists and community groups providing more programs and services each year.
The Arts Council is gearing up for 2014. Our year-end membership drive and donations to our Art Fund help us plan for new programs. It is not to late to be part of the team that makes great art and art program possible in Lafayette County with a tax deductable donation to the Arts Council.
