The Jordan River Arts Council
As a leader of the Jordan River area’s cultural community, the Jordan River Arts Council promotes, encourages, and nurtures the artistic endeavors of local residents and provides an organized framework through which quality workshops, classes, exhibits, programs and performances can be presented.
Recognizing its responsibility to nurture art in daily living and to provide participation opportunities in all areas of the arts, JRAC serves a diverse and growing community. To accomplish this mission, the Arts Council relies upon a volunteer Board of Directors and the cooperation and support of area communities.
In 1989 our founding members visualized the energy of a flowing river
as a metaphor for a creative force bringing together people, talents and
learning opportunities in support of a cultural community. Thus was
born the Jordan River Arts Council, today celebrating 30 years as an all-
volunteer organization. By sponsoring visual arts exhibits, musical
performances, dramas and poetry readings, workshops of all types, as
well as writing, drawing, plein air and philosophy groups, we have built
a creative home for many community members. Our historic 100
year old Carnegie Library Building provides the brick and mortar center
for these activities.
