Re-Branding Initiative

Announcing the beginning of our re-branding initiative.Nothing is really changing, but we are "re-branding" to emphasize a part of our organization that has always been there, The Arts Council of Placer County (ACPC). The Arts Council of Placer County is the umbrella for the whole organization, with all of our programs, including Placer Arts, falling under this. With the re-branding initiative, we are hoping to expand our reach to all of Placer County to complement our revitalization of the Community Grants program. This program is intended to support the arts and cultural activities of artists and community organizations that serve residents and visitors of Placer County.

To stay in touch and get announcements about programs, events, classes, and more, be sure to LIKE/FOLLOW our Facebook page. We hope to enhance artists and visitors experiences even further than before with this new, representative re-branding initiative. Please join us!
