Arts Council Office

The Arts Council office is open Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM, often closed for lunch. As the nature of our business involves public events, and community outreach, the office may sometimes be closed during regularly scheduled business hours. Please call ahead – 337-439-2787 – to ensure that someone will be in the office and able to help you.

Arts Council Board of Directors, 2015-16

Arts Council board meetings are open to the public and are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Benjamin W. Mount Auditorium of Central School.
