Picture of a poem and the painting it inspired.

As we close out the month of April, there is so much that we are proud of supporting and creating during Arts, Culture & Creativity month here in Nevada County and across the state.

We had both the cities of Grass Valley and Nevada City declare the month of April as Arts, Culture & Creativity month in alignment with our County and California. On the 18th we met with our District One representatives Senator Brian Dahle and Assemblywoman Megan Dahle to advocate for arts funding along with representatives from Music in the Mountains, members from our Board of Directors, and other State Local Partners from the upstate region. Yesterday we met with Bruce Ross via zoom, to discuss the importance of funding the arts for community health, resiliency, and our youth.

We also recieved redesignation for our two celebrated cultural districts – Grass Valley-Nevada City Cultural District and #truckeeculturaldistrict – and hosted the 7th annual Sierra Poetry Festival at The Center for the Arts!

We know the arts are for everyone (#ArtinAll) and continue to advocate on behalf of our community, both near and far.
