why become a member of the arts council?


Because your membership donation…


…helps us produce the award-winning Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival, hosting over 77,000 people, and bringing in over $1,500,000 in revenue for the City of Augusta.


…enables us to provide enlightening and informative workshops in the Aspirations series,  a result of a survey that the Greater Augusta Arts Council took to determine what would serve the local artists in this community.


…produces our annual Wet Paint Party and Sale that puts cash straight into the pockets of local visual artists. In the last 5 years, Wet Paint has put over $20,000 straight into artists' pockets.


…supports our collaboration with the City of Augusta on Art the Box, Augusta Magazine's best new Civic Project of 2016! Starting in May 2015, 23 artists painted 19 Traffic Signal boxes to brighten up the landscape of the city, with plans for more!


…endorses our role as Public Art Agency  for the City of Augusta where we manage projects such as facilitating the painting of the mural on the Rosa T. Beard Memorial Bridge and cataloging and documenting Augusta’s public art.

We couldn't do it without member support.
