Since 1983, PlacerArts has been building community throughout Placer County. We believe that art should be a part of everyday living and that, when it is, everyone in the community benefits from a higher quality of life.

Catalyst for the Arts and Humanities

As the designated State Local partner of the California Arts Council, our programs and services encourage and support the public to “experience art in all degrees.”

We promote the good work of a constellation of arts and cultural agencies as well as that of independent visual, performing and literary artists. In doing so, we generate joy and stimulate the imagination as well as the economy. We provide district- and school-wide planning assistance for arts-in-education programs from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve, as well as for special constituencies. We engage professional artists and technicians to present dozens of annual public arts and cultural events and serve as a clearing house for information on the arts in Placer County and the Sierra Nevada.

If you’re not already a member, we encourage you to join PlacerArts and become an integral part of our creative community. Get to know us! We’ve been active in the county for 25 years, and our supporters and volunteers are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate about the arts and building community.
