Longmont Council for the Arts

About Us



Longmont Council for the Arts believes art enhances the quality of life. Every day, we inspire creativity for our artists, students and patrons because art enables us to see the world in a different way.


Mission: Longmont Council for the Arts provides leadership and advocacy to support, inspire, and enhance the arts community to elevate the quality of life in the greater St. Vrain Valley region.


Vision: We envision a community rich in culture where the arts inspire innovative spirit, celebrate cultural diversity and encourage individual and community involvement.

Since 1985, Longmont Council for the Arts (LCA) has brought quality cultural and artistic programs to Longmont and the St. Vrain Valley. The LCA provides an array of services to artists and cultural arts organizations, including administrative support, grant writing services, fundraising, marketing and promotion, education and community outreach.


LCA programs include all of the major arts disciplines: visual arts, performing arts, literary arts and art education. Some of the LCA’s programs have matured into independent non-profit organizations. For example, Art in Public Places is now run by the City of Longmont; ArtWalk was originated by the LCA and later adopted by the Old Firehouse Arts Center. In a collaborative effort with The Art Studio, Inc., the Longmont Council for the Arts developed the Old Firehouse Art Center.
