About The Arts Council

The Sierra County Arts Council is a member-supported 501 (c) (3) nonprofit public benefit corporation established in 1981 to promote, support and advocate the arts throughout Sierra County, California.

The Sierra County Board of Supervisors has designated the Sierra County Arts Council as the State Local Partner of the California Arts Council, a state agency, annually since 1981. The Arts Council’s business office has been located in the historic Yuba Theatre in Downieville since 1996.

We’re glad that you took the time to visit our site. The Sierra County Arts Council relies on the contributions of volunteers and the general public to ensure that programming efforts continue to grow and enhance the quality of life for Sierra County residents and visitors. Everyone is welcome to participate in its programs and events. We hope to see you soon!

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
