Welcome to the Ames Community Arts Council
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:

This week's featured member: Barbara Evenson
Barbara is an Iowa-born Celtic harper who loves to play and sing the music of Ireland and Scotland. She discovered my love for the harp after trying one belonging to a friend, and hasn't looked back since.
The music of her ancestors feeds her soul, and she loves to share it with others, through performing and teaching.
Thanks to the Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau for support in our 2015 Re-Branding Project and 2016 Studio Tour!
