For 37 years AmadorArts, the Amador County Arts Council has worked as a private non-profit public benefit organization to nurture the cultural vitality of our area which is rich in history, relaxed lifestyle, and natural beauty. An unusually large number of professional visual and performing artists make their home here. The arts of Amador are a resource, much like timber, water, wine and tourism that contribute to our local economy.
The mission of AmadorArts is to:
ENCOURAGE, SUPPORT, AND PROMOTE THE ARTS IN OUR SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY.
AmadorArts is part of the State Local Partnership (SLP), a grant program with the California Arts Council. By collaborating with artists, artist-teachers, and volunteers, AmadorArts has developed and sustained many arts programs and arts education curricula. The purpose of AmadorArts is to be the catalyst for the arts by acting as a central dispenser of any federal, state, or private monies to county artists, art students, and arts organization; by developing programs to enhance the arts in the county; by stimulating the economic environment so as to promote county arts and artists; by establishing and maintaining relationships with local, regional, and national arts organizations; and by operating as a liaison between the Amador County Board of Supervisors and the arts community.
