The Arts Council of Montgomery was formed in 1979. Former Mayor Emory Folmar described it as an “umbrella for the arts” in the City of Montgomery. The Arts Council was developed and approved in 1977 by the Cultural Arts Office of the Parks and Recreation Department, for the sole purpose of developing an arts entity for the city. Many people have been involved with the council over the years by serving on our Board of Directors, volunteering with our programs, or through sponsorship. This page is dedicated to our artsy and art loving friends of the council.
