Mission Statement

The Arts Council of Placer County, dba PlacerArts, is a catalyst for the arts and humanities throughout Placer County serving residents, visitors, artists, arts organizations and partner agencies with programs, advocacy, resources, collaborations and support. As a non-profit, public benefit agency, and a state-local partner of the California Arts Council, we promote public access to and experiences of the arts, support professional development of local arts creators and presenters, celebrate the authentic culture and heritage of our towns, and advocate for arts education in schools and communities.

Description

The Arts Council of Placer County does business as PlacerArts to present quality visual arts exhibits, tours, events and professional performing arts and community theatrical performances that add significantly to the quality of life of residents of Placer County and nearby regions.

The General Gomez Arts and Events Center in downtown Auburn is currently home to the PlacerArts administrative office, five artists-in-residence and a number of public programs. ARTspace Auburn in The Gomez Building hosts classes for adults, teens and children. PlacerArts classes have now expanded to ARTspace Rocklin to further provide access to the arts in that area of the County.

PlacerArts plays an often invisible, but vital backstage role as well. We connect with schools, teachers and county education officials to keep arts in the schools; provide technical expertise and inspiration to artists and sister arts organizations; write grant proposals; and meet with community organizations such as Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development offices to develop strategies to keep the county vibrant.
