Allegany Arts Council

The Allegany Arts Council is a private, non-profit organization working to ensure that Allegany County, Maryland is A Community Alive with the Arts! As the official "umbrella organization" for the arts in our county,  our mission is to cultivate the arts to enrich the quality of life in our community.


Our ongoing goals are to (1) increase awareness of and access to the arts, (2) to provide a supportive environment for local artists and arts organizations to thrive, (3) to foster economic vitality through the arts, and (4) to develop the Allegany Arts Council as a high performing sustainable organization. 


Headquartered along with the Saville Gallery at 9 N. Centre Street in Downtown Cumberland's Arts & Entertainment District, the Allegany Arts Council sponsors and produces a wide variety of art events, activities and programs throughout the year. For questions or additional information about the Allegany Arts Council, please contact us at 301-777-ARTS (2787).
