Incorporated in 1993, the Adams County Arts Council has evolved from a small group of optimistic organizers into a 500-member non-profit agency supporting artistic efforts throughout the county’s schools and communities.
The Council’s mission is to cultivate an arts-rich community. Its primary goals are to provide arts opportunities for students of all ages and to support the work of local arts presenters and artists. To help support our work, you may donate to our annual fund.
Our Arts in Education programming has brought musicians, graphic artists, a videographer, a Flamenco dancer and a dulcimer maker into our schools. The annual Recyclable Art contest and the Adams County Traveling Children’s Theater Troupe are specifically designed for children.
Gettysburg’s Rec. Park Amphitheater has a one-of-a-kind ceramic tile mural backdrop, designed by artist Lynette King with a host of area senior center members, and offered to Adams County as a lasting legacy
The STAR Grant – Supporting The Arts Regionally – provides financial support to arts organizations in the county such as the Brass Band Festival, Music, Gettysburg! and its Class Notes series, Sunday in the Park concerts, the Heritage Festival, and more.
