Wilson Arts, formerly known as the Arts Council of Wilson, has a fifty-year history as a local arts agency, beginning on April 24, 1967. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Wilson County by providing cultural leadership and opportunities in the arts. Currently we fulfill that mission through participatory and passive programming in visual and performing arts disciplines. Throughout the year, we offer more than six professional gallery exhibits, a professional performance series (the “Boykin Series”), a youth theater education program (ACT! for Youth), educational workshops for adults and children, and camps in visual art and theater. We also offer support to large and small emerging arts organizations through our Grassroots Grant program.
