Arts Council Celebrating 25 Years of Service
to the Community and the Arts
Council was formed in 1978 by people in the community concerned about
the role the arts would play in planning issues. Since that time, the
Council has been continually involved with citizen groups participating
in efforts to revitalize Hollywood.
Highlights of the Hollywood Arts Councilís accomplishments through the
years include the annual Childrenís Festival of the Arts, outdoor art
shows for local artists, promoting the wealth of arts activities available
through Discover Hollywood Magazine, the Jazz Pilgrimage Concert Sept.
20 and the annual Charlie Awards Luncheon held the last Friday of January.
Through the years the community has changed and the need for arts activities
for elementary school children has become a priority. Project SOAR (Students
Overcoming All Risks), the Councilís after school program, provides
over 2,000 4th and 5th graders with quality art instruction and an opportunity
to explore their own creativity.
The Council relies on donations and its volunteers to carry out its
programs. Everyone interested in the arts and in the unique culture
of Hollywood is invited to join. The Council receives support from the
Los Angeles County Performing Arts Commission, City of Los Angeles Cultural
Affairs Department, Klasky-Csupo, Inc., American Express, Eastman Kodak
Company, Pacific Bell, Paramount Pictures, Church of Scientology Celebrity
Centre International, the Entertainment Industry Foundation, the Eisner
Foundation and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation, to
name a few.
The Hollywood Arts Council has emerged as the voice for Hollywood's
unique culture and a strong advocate for the impact arts can have on
the life of a community. The Council has renewed its dedication to promoting,
nurturing and supporting the arts and is evolving to meet new challenges
