ARTS COUNCIL FOR LONG BEACH CELEBRATES 40 YEARS
Since the Arts Council for Long Beach was founded 40 years ago – on September 22, 1976 – the non-profit organization has funded hundreds of artists, organizations, education programs and cultural and music events. It has advocated for increased arts funding, organized creative placemaking efforts throughout the city from live music to mural installations, promoted the city’s arts, culture and music, delivered arts education to thousands of schoolchildren in grades K–12, placed college students in internships, hired artists, connected artists to opportunities within and outside of Long Beach. We are dedicated to supporting all the genres of art in our city.
With a contribution $40 or more, donor will receive our 40th Anniversary sketchbook as a gift.
Celebrate 40th Anniversary
SO grateful for for the endless list of events and programs the Arts Council for Long Beach brings to this city … Every artist beginner or established needs to sign up and support this valuable group. – Denise Dube
The Arts Council for Long Beach and the arts community had much to celebrate at the council’s annual State of the Arts event on September 22. In addition to honoring community members for their contributions to the arts, as the organization does each year, two announcements were made that caused attendees at the packed event at the East Village’s Liberty Art Gallery to erupt in applause. #OctoberIsArtsMonth – Samantha Mehlinger, Long Beach Business Journal
