Benefits of building a diverse art community
We bring together art lovers, community organizations, independent artists, and local businesses to advocate, promote, and provide opportunities to celebrate the arts for all Tulare County residents and visitors. Through leadership and innovation, we are committed to preserving our cultural and creative diversity by building communities where the arts are a vital part of everyday life.
Membership support ensures the Arts Consortium remains a vital community resource through initiatives such as:
- Development of a curriculum for area elementary schools through the Artists in Schools Residency Program;
- The My Voice Media Center, which operates as a free studio and provides art training for persons in Tulare County with lived mental health experience;
- Production of annual events such as Taste the Arts Festival and Street Fair and the South Valley Artists Studio Tour;
- Facilitating the growth of cultural arts programs and resources that support diverse segments of the community through the Community Arts Grant Program, in partnership with the City of Visalia;
- Guidance and financial support for designated “special projects”, which include the Urbanists Art Collective, the Visalia Opera Company, and our publicly-owned art collection, the Visalia Visual Chronicle.
