The mission of the Greenville Arts Council is to promote the rich cultural heritage of the region and stimulate and encourage cultural activities, arts appreciation, arts education, and the creative works of artists.
We strive to continue our mission through housing local artist’s studio spaces, hosting gallery exhibitions year-round of local/regional artists, coordinate student and teacher learning arts-workshops, and opening our auditorium doors for artistic, cultural activities.
The Greenville Arts Council is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works in public/private partnership with the City of Greenville and the Washington County Convention & Visitors Bureau. Our agency also receives public funding from the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency and National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additionally, our programs and services are supported by private foundations, corporate donors, our volunteer board of directors, and individuals committed to cultural development in the city.
Individuals can contribute on many levels. Membership is a great and affordable way to support the work of the arts council on an annual basis and has many valuable benefits. Be sure to check out our Membership opportunities & join us in our mission to support the arts.
Volunteering with the Greenville Arts Council is a wonderful way to contribute something positive to your community and to feed your own creativity at the same time. The E.E. Bass Cultural Arts Center is an exciting place to be! There is always something going on, and here one can witness all of the varied art forms in action. There are opportunities to help GAC & E. E. BASS FOUNDATION set-up/break-down events, organize materials/supplies, clear out the old to bring in the new, file paperwork, assist in answering phones, & much more.
