Athens Area Arts Council

Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC) is a volunteer non-profit arts organization, whose goal is to integrate the artistic resources of the Athens area into our educational system, local economy, and the community’s culture. AAAC is an active advocate for public art and sponsors artistic performances and events that broaden the community exposures to the arts- visual art, film, music, dance, and literature. AAAC also serves as a clearinghouse for information about the arts and provides support services to working artists.

The Athens Area Arts Council hosts several events throughout the year to educate artists and help unite the Athens arts community, including the Pulaski Street Art Crawl, monthly Lunch-n-Learn events, and Arts Happy Hour. AAAC also has sponsored several projects to enhance public art and the effect the arts has on our community, including You, Me and the Bus, which installed artistically designed bus shelters as pieces of public art; the Arts & Economic Prosperity Study; Art Decko, a mural project which hangs in the stairwell of the College Avenue parking deck.

Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm, at the Lyndon House Arts Center. See the website for more information and membership details: athensarts.org
