About Us

The Arts Council of Rockland is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the arts, culture  and the role of artists in our community.  We seek to foster appreciation and participation in the arts  in the diverse socio-economic communities that reside in Rockland County by providing programs of interest to the community and our members, professional development to artists and educators, marketing resources for artists and arts organizations, access to grant opportunities, scholarships, and increased opportunities to network and collaborate.
