Welcome to the Lamorinda Arts Council
The mission of the Lamorinda Arts Council is 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.
What's Happening Now
Tuesday Nov. 30th was Giving Tuesday for 2021! The arts community, globally and right here at home, has faced immeasurable challenges these past 20 months. Through it all, our dedicated volunteers and board members have worked hard to bring thoughtful, creative, inspiring programs to our community. We offer artists and art lovers alike the opportunity to be engaged in artistic expression and appreciation in a safe environment.
It is not too late to donate to Lamorinda Arts Council & support the arts in your community.
