Arts Advisory Council

The Community Arts Advisory Council is comprised of community leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, and arts philanthropists and acts as a sounding board for the Visual & Performing Arts staff at Millersville University. The group meets quarterly at the Ware Center in Downtown Lancaster to learn about special events, achievements, and programming ideas for the upcoming season. The group also provides input, suggests opportunities for community partnerships, and communicates arts activities to their networks. Members are expected to attend the Opening and Closing Night events if possible. Membership is by invitation only, and members are asked to serve a two year term.
