Since 1983, PlacerArts has been building an arts community throughout Placer County.
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.”
The Arts Council of Placer County does business as PlacerArts to present quality visual arts exhibits, tours, and events. Although we are physically located in Old Town Auburn, we promote and advocate for all arts across Placer County and nearby regions.
The PlacerArts administrative office in downtown Auburn hosts ARTspace classes for adults, teens, and children. ARTspace clases are also offered in Rocklin to further provide access to the arts throughout Placer County.
As one way to showcase artists and musicians from across Placer County, PlacerArts partners with Auburn businesses in Old Town and Downtown to present the popular Auburn Art Walk four times a year, which has increased local awareness and business support of Arts programs.
The Autumn Art Studios Tour takes place each fall, featuring artists throughout Western Placer County.
PlacerArts also implements other programs including: connecting with schools, teachers and county education officials to keep arts in the schools; providing technical expertise and inspiration to artists and sister arts organizations; writing grant proposals; and meeting with community organizations such as Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development offices to develop strategies to keep Placer County a vibrant center for the arts.
If you’re not already a member, we encourage you to join PlacerArts to support the arts and become an integral part of our creative community!
