Art Changes Everything!

Art outlives each of us, and is the purest history of the human spirit-not only what we are, but what we dream of becoming.

Art is more than entertainment. Art is the most precious brain trust we have among the many treasures within our families, our cultures, our nation, and our world.

Exposure to and lifelong learning in the Arts create healthier individuals and communities, as well as more enriched and fulfilling lives. The Arts Council of Central Louisiana exists to broaden the impact of Art and Culture through serving and supporting those artists and organizations who create the Art that shapes the lives of our friends and neighbors.

If you are interested in serving your community through the Arts, we encourage you to contact the Arts Council in order to become a volunteer, become an advocate, or make a charitable donation to the Arts Council. Most importantly, we encourage you to patronize the Arts locally!
