Support the arts!
Our mission is to keep the arts at the heart of our community.
Since 1952, the Asheville Area Arts Council has been supporting the arts in Buncombe County. We believe the arts are the cornerstone of what makes the Asheville area such a great place to live in and visit, and investing in the arts is a real investment in Buncombe County.

Advocacy: data collection, reports, policy initiatives, education, representation, partnerships, and special events
Public Art: free, inclusive, and accessible art for all
