Since its founding in 1962, Greensboro’s arts council has contributed approximately $20 million to area arts organizations and projects.
Today, the Arts Council of Greater Greensboro has a new name—Arts Greensboro—and a new website: artsgreensboro.org. They’re continuing to contribute much more than just grants alone to the Triad. Arts Greensboro is currently making final preparations for its 17 Days Arts and Culture Festival. This year’s festival runs from September 20th to October 6th with nearly 100 arts events planned such as multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee Joan Osborne and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra trumpet star Brandon Lee.
