The Greater Augusta Arts Council

The Greater Augusta Arts Council was founded in 1968 by the Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce, the Junior Women’s Club, and the Junior League of Augusta to serve as an umbrella organization for the arts in Augusta. Over the years, we have taken an increasingly active role in planning and implementing Augusta’s cultural identity.


Currently, we serve as Augusta’s Public Art Agency, and also the agency in charge of re-granting arts funds from the City of Augusta. We also organize

 opportunities and events for both artists and art lovers, including the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival, a 2 1/2 day celebration of the varied arts and cultural diversity that make up Augusta. Other events and outreach programs we produce are: Aspirations workshop series, the annual Wet Paint Party and Sale, and the annual Arts Awards dinner.

Strategic Plan 2015-2018

The mission of the Greater Augusta Arts Council is to enrich the quality of life for citizens and visitors in

Augusta and the Central Savannah River Area by advancing a vibrant cultural arts agenda.
