Indiana County, Pennsylvania
The Indiana Arts Council, a nonprofit corporation, fosters the creation and greater appreciation of the fine, creative, and performing arts in Indiana County. Our constituency includes all of the residents of the Indiana County area, irrespective of prior arts exposure.
The IAC enjoys, and intends to continue, a cooperative relationship with Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Indiana County’s principle cultural resource.
IAC promotes excellence and diversity of local arts presentations through assistance and support to independent arts organizations.
Guided by a 15-member board of directors and administered by an executive director, the IAC depends upon membership fees as a primary source of income. Additional funding is received from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, private foundations, corporate sponsorships, and various projects. Additionally, AmeriCorps’ Pennsylvania Mountain Service Corps sponsors a year long Volunteer Coordinator position to aid in public outreach.
