The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council serves the entire community. Our staff, board members, volunteers and partners work to provide new experiences for your family through the arts. Your ongoing support has made it possible for talented artists to enrich our community, to provide opportunities for everyone to be part of the creative process, and to launch new programs that will continue to define us as an arts community.
Your membership is key to our ability to plan a full year of programming. A membership in the arts council is an investment in our community. Membership donations provide the resources for the Arts Council to seed educational programs, to support community projects such as the Art Truck, which provides free art classes throughout our county, and offer free events such as the Oxford Art Crawl.
I invite you to renew your membership and join us at our annual membership event on May 16th at Avent Park at 7 p.m.
In just the past few years, with the support you provide, over $500,000 of improvements have been completed on the building including new theater seats, lighting and sound equipment, backstage, and the sculpture garden. These enhancements have made it possible to present original works by performers, to provide a venue for screening independent films, to host classes for children and adult programs, and to attract national tours to our community. The Arts Council’s long range plans will transform the remainder of the building.
All that we offer the community is because of your support. I ask you to please renew your membership today!
