The Arts Council of Carteret County was formed in February 1974. The mission is to expand, promote and nurture the arts, honor traditional culture, and welcome creativity. The group strives to accomplish this through its Grassroots Grants program funded by the NC Arts Council, and funding arts events and educational programs, assisting artists seeking grants through the Regional Artist Grants Program, sponsoring the May ARTrageous art show in conjunction with the Downtown Morehead City Revitalization Association, conducting the Summer Art Camp for youngsters age 10-13 in a variety of art disciplines (photography/computer graphics, painting/drawing, drama, music, and pottery), and managing the Adopt-an-Artist Program which matches artists with local businesses to display their art.  Every February it sponsors the Art From The Heart exhibition, which involves hundreds of artists. The council also sponsors workshops and performances that are announced throughout the year. The addition of programs conducted or assisted by the Arts Council has resulted in a community arts concept that embraces drama, literature, dance, music, traditional crafts, the visual arts and the family. Volunteer assistance and membership support keep the programs of this organization active and growing.
