Carson City Arts & Culture Coalition

Carson City’s arts and cultural community captures the Carson City experience.  The Coalition, founded in 2001, is an informal group of Carson City artists and arts organizations that convene to support each other and advocate for arts and culture.  We recognize that a creative environment is essential to an energetic, engaged, and economically robust community.

The Coalition strives to strengthen the area’s arts and culture groups through funding, visibility initiatives, access to new resources, and political voice.  We provide umbrella support and advocacy for arts and culture entities within our community. With this intent and a vision to secure Carson City as the region’s hub for celebrating creative and cultural experiences, the Coalition moves forward.

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

Pablo Picasso
This world is but a canvas to our imagination.

Henry David Thoreau
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
