Mayor’s Arts Council Vision Statement

Angola will be a community that has Arts and Culture interwoven into its fabric.

Our values include but are not limited to:  Diversity, Appreciation, Education, Opportunity, and Inclusivity.

 

"Sculptures Angola" is the MAC's signature project.  the first sculptures, pictured below, were installed in June of 2019 and displayed through June 2020.   The placemaking initiative is supportive of education and entrepreneurship initiatives related to the growth of the creative economy.  Current sculptures can also be viewed at the Steuben County Tourism Bureau.

Placemaking data collected through the Angola Hometown Collaboration Initiative (HCI) helped to encourage the creation of the arts council and is also planned to help fund the initial year for "Sculptures Angola".  You can find the HCI data at the links below and also a Downtown Services report on the arts in 2020.
