Welcome to the Lamorinda Arts Council
Founded in 1950 as the Orinda Arts Council, the Lamorinda Arts Council has been stimulating, supporting, and advocating for the visual and performing arts in the schools and community for over sixty years. Key contributions to the schools and community include Lamorinda Idol, the High School Visual Arts Competition, Lamorinda ShortDocs Film Fest, Art in Public Places, Orinda Library Gallery, school musicals, and much more!
Mission: to ignite and sustain artistic expression and appreciation for all ages throughout Lamorinda. We are an engaged group of volunteers and donors who develop and produce events, partner with professional organizations and artists, give financial support and awards, and advocate for a vibrant, local culture of visual, performing, and literary arts.
A great way to be green while supporting the arts in Lamorinda - simply bring in your own bags when shopping at Whole Foods in Lafayette. A nickel will be donated to the Orinda Arts Council for every bag a shopper brings to the store. Whole Foods is at 3502 Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette. This campaign runs until August 31. Thank you, Whole Foods!
