North Carolina Arts Council
22 Oct 2014

Mission: To utilize the arts for the benefit of North Carolina citizens and communities.

North Carolina had long been recognized for rich traditions in crafts, literature, historical drama and music when, by executive order in 1964, Governor Terry Sanford created the North Carolina Arts Council to strengthen North Carolina’s creativity, invention and prosperity.

Under Governor Dan K. Moore, the Arts Council became a statutory state agency in 1967. It operates today as an agency of the Department of Cultural Resources, the nation’s first cabinet level state agency for the arts, history, and libraries.

Director: Wayne Martin
