Rutherford County Arts Council is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to cultural revitalization through the arts. This goal is pursued through works of art produced by the Arts Council, particularly drama, and through support of and partnership with other organizations and individuals dedicated to the same purpose. The participation of children in artistic projects, both in and out of the school setting, is especially encouraged and facilitated by the Arts Council, not only cultivating the full potential of the individual child, but, in the surest way, enriching, revitalizing, and building up our community and the larger culture.
Regional Artist Project Grants Available – Rutherford County Arts Council and Arts Councils in ten other counties provide a collaborative grant program, Regional Artist Project Grant, each year. The Grant is administered by the Arts & Science Council of Charlotte Mecklenburg, and is open to artists of the 11 participating counties.
