This fee replaces what we used to call membership. You do not have to be a member of the arts council to participate in any of our events, classes, or offerings. We would love to collect these artists' profiles so we have better data on the artists we serve.
This fee covers some of the overhead associated with advocating on your behalf as an artist in our community. We will use these profiles to contact you with private invitations to participate or to offer you an opportunity for commission work. We are also working toward offering an artist directory of sorts, artist features in social media, art studio tours, and even an artist map. This information and small fee help us get a jump start on this work.
