Welcome to the Ames Community Arts Council
2021 Business of Art Conference
We're going virtual! The 3rd annual Business of Art Conference will be held via Zoom on Saturday, March 6 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Full details coming soon!
Artists and supporters of the arts, non-profit organizations and businesses have come together as the Ames Community Arts Council since 1976. We are dedicated to building a sense of community and helping artists succeed. We believe that participating in the arts--as audience members, musicians, actors, dancers, writers, makers, volunteers, and more--enriches our lives and our community.
What we do:
The Ames Community Arts Council is a non-profit 501(c)(3) funded through memberships, donations, and grants, including the City of Ames Commission on the Arts (COTA). The Arts Council is dedicated to celebrating the arts and serving the community.
Here's a quick look at some things we do:
