We love sharing art and encouraging art. Our mission is to encourage and promote artistic and cultural activities in Huntingdon County. The joy on the face of a young student as she sees her artwork on display at our Spring Thaw. A sense of wonder as a visitor views a unique piece of art at our Art Space exhibit.
As you can see from the list at the bottom we have been busy this year as we seek to accomplish our mission. But we cannot do that without your support.
Tuesday, November 28 is #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving where you choose to donate money to any organization of your choice!
We appreciate your ongoing support of our programs and activities! Your support of the Huntingdon County Arts Council helps us support arts and cultural opportunities in Huntingdon County.
Donations to the Arts Council can be made on our Get Involved page of our website, www.huntingdoncountyarts.com
The Huntingdon County Arts Council is a non-profit, run with one part time employee and a host of wonderful volunteers. With your contributions we are able to offer a wide variety of programs.
During this holiday season we hope you might consider supporting the Huntingdon County Arts Council. #GivingTuesday is an international day to “give back.” After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, kick off the charitable season on Tuesday, November 28 with a donation of your time, resources, and ideas.
