The Perkins County Area Arts Council was formed in July, 2003.  It has a seven member board, with rotating terms.  Some of the possible things an art council can do, and our members have expressed an interest in doing are:

    Sponsor concerts and performances

    offer workshops for children and adults arts activities

    work with the Nebraska Arts Council

    operate an art gallery

    coordinate an "arts in the Park"

    support a community choir, theatre or band

    coordinate public art projects, such as murals

    promote arts education in local schools  (such as Artist in Residence program)

    support artists' projects

    act as an umbrella for community arts activities

Many of the members of PCAAC are not "hands on" artists, but are interested in the Arts and want to find an avenue to support that effort.   Many surrounding counties have Arts Councils and web sites and many members are excited to see that Perkins County has finally come "up to speed" in this regard.  Check out our "Links" for other Art Galleries in our area.  We have been cooperating with surrounding Arts Councils on several projects and they are invited to use this sites bulletin board to help spread the word.   

Perkins County Area Arts Council is a non-profit organization serving Perkins County, Nebraska, dedicated to furthering amateur and professional artists' abilities and promoting appreciation of art in all its forms.
