Our Arts in Education programming has brought
musicians, graphic artists, a videographer, a Flamenco dancer
and a dulcimer maker into our schools. The annual Recyclable Art
contest and the Adams County Traveling Children’s Theater Troupe
are specifically designed for children.
Gettysburg’s Rec. Park Amphitheater has a
one-of-a-kind ceramic tile mural backdrop, designed by artist
Lynette King with a host of area senior center members, and
offered to Adams County as a lasting legacy.
ACAC was awarded the only Pennsylvania
Millennium grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, with
which we hired composer Robert Maggio to write a new piece of
music celebrating the county’s Bicentennial. South Mountain
Echoes debuted July 4, 2000.
The STAR Grant – Supporting The Arts Regionally
– provides financial support to arts organizations in the county
such as the Brass Band Festival, Music, Gettysburg! and its
Class Notes series, Sunday in the Park concerts, the Heritage
Festival, and more.
With ever increasing challenges before us, your commitment has
been important to us and we ask for your continued help through
a personal gift to our Annual Fund Campaign.
