Arts Alliance of Fulton County
IT'S REALLY ALL ART!
Let's be honest...the first written communications were cave pictures drawn on walls...the first entertainment consisted of stories and tales around campfires...music began when the first person blew breath across a wild reed...truly life really is ALL ART!
And so a new alliance has formed in the region - an alliance with a grand purpose to maintain, to enhance, and to promote the arts in Fulton County both within and without. Welcome to our site!
The performing and visual arts play a major role in the culture of the Fulton County community. Several of the arts organizations are many decades old and rich with interesting history - The Fulton County Playhouse, the Fulton County Arts Council, the Community Concert Association to name but a few. Many performers, musicians, and artists from the area have gone on to make the arts their vocations. Some have remained in the area and continue to share their talents with us . . . others now live in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles and share their talents with the world.
You will want to visit this site often to read about the hundreds of arts activities occurring each year. This site provides you with a Calendar of Events and announcements of special programs, workshops, and seminars, organizational and event contact information, and links to the websites of individual arts organizations in our area. We hope to see YOU at our next arts event!
This program/project has been made possible, in part, by a grant from the RLI Insurance Company Corporate Contributions Fund and The Louise Flora Howard Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
