Statewide Arts Celebration Events
In all corners of our state, North Carolinians engage in a wide variety of arts experiences – from performances in big concert halls to artist residencies in schools. During our anniversary season, we are shining a spotlight on these creative moments. Events and programs in all 100 counties have been dedicated to the North Carolina Arts Council’s 50th. This is our Statewide Arts Celebration.
