Welcome to the official web site of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council
Founded in 1975 the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council remains committed to a diverse offering of artistic and cultural opportunities.
Each year, YAC creates and delivers an exciting package of projects, programs and good works in the spirit of its mission to the community. This past year the two member staff, the board and volunteers presented 300 days of art programs ranging from students programs, exhibits by emerging artists in the gallery, live theatre productions, concerts, classes, and independent film screenings. The Arts Council assists over 20 various groups each year. This is possible only through the support of individuals and businesses. The membership drive is one of the key fundraising tools that enable us to present free art camps for children in the summer, concerts in the Grove, live music at The Powerhouse, a rotating schedule of free art exhibits, to acquiring all equipment to present live productions by Theatre Oxford, Leda Swan and others at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center.
Our site is currently limited, as we are preparing a major redesign and implementation of some exciting new features, so stay tuned for the relaunch. In the interim, we will be posting important news and announcements below. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page and join our mailing list so you can keep up-to-the-minute on all the Arts Council happenings.
