"The arts and humanities teach us who we are and what we can be. They lie in the very core of the culture of which we're a part" - Ronald Reagan
You have probably seen a change in philosophy in our organization, with a re-branding back to our original name and commitment to a county-wide focus.
The Arts Council of Placer County promotes and advocates for all arts across Placer County to enrich and help develop the artistic culture of this region of Northern California.
Who We Are
A catalyst for the Arts and Humanities. Since 1983, the Arts Council of Placer County 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.
What We Do
As the designated State-Local partner of Placer County and the California Arts Council, our programs and services encourage and support the public to “experience art in all degrees.” ACPC provides artists and art lovers with many different resources for staying connected. Our Art Events Calendar provides a comprehensive list of upcoming events and our Arts Directory includes listings of Placer County Artists, Venues and Organizations.
Our Community Arts Grants, which are awarded each January, are made possible by funding from Placer County, the California Arts Council and local contributions. In 2019, over $80,000 has been allotted for this program and covers a wide variety of Arts in Placer County.
See the page on this site for more information on community grants: https://www.placerarts.org/community-grants/
We also have many local events and outreach opportunities that provide another outlet for exhibiting local talent.
How We Do It
As we carry out our Scope of Work on behalf of Placer County and the California Arts Council, we support arts in our region by helping all creative events be successful, inform, connect, and leverage grant funds, provide information, tools and resources to assist in the areas of promotions.
We also support the arts by promoting the arts within our community and beyond.
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.
