Foundation launches Park County Arts Council

To help realize a coordinated vision for the arts in Park County, the Park County Community Foundation is working to establish a Park County Arts Council.

Comprised of Park County residents with a passion for the arts, the Arts Council will serve two important roles: (1) support the development of a broad strategic vision for the arts in Park County, and (2) collaborate with the Park County Community Foundation staff and board members to allocate grants specific to the Park County arts community.

“Park County has a long history as a center of Montana’s arts culture and our 2023 We Will Park County community survey confirmed that many residents count our local arts and cultural opportunities as one of the top three things they like most about living here,” said Gavin Clark, executive director at the Park County Community Foundation. “As Park County continues to evolve, it is incumbent on us to ensure that Park County’s arts culture remains healthy and sustainable.”

The Park County Community Foundation invites residents from throughout Park County to be volunteer members of this newly launched Arts Council by completing the Expression of Interest form online at the PCCF website.

Additional background information about this program — along with the specific roles and responsibilities of members of the Arts Council — can be found on the Park County Community Foundation’s website.

Please reach out with any questions by calling the Park County Community Foundation’s office at 406-224-3920, or by sending an email to the program director:

The deadline for interest in serving on the Arts Council is Thursday, Feb. 8.

Founded by community leaders in 2005, the Park County Community Foundation seeks to connect caring people and resources with the most pressing community needs and opportunities in Park County.
