Blowing Rock Community Arts Center Foundation

The Blowing Rock Community Arts Center Foundation, Inc. was formed in December 2000 by community members to promote the advancement of cultural arts and humanities in Blowing Rock and the North Carolina High Country through a regional arts center. These individuals believed the High Country critically needed a cultural arts center to make high quality arts programming accessible to a rural mountain population; to bring together diverse communities previously isolated from one another; and, to allow underserved artists and school children to interact in the kind of institution usually found in America’s larger cities.

The Foundation provided the financial support needed to build the Grand Entrance of the new Arts Center.
