For many years Arts Davidson County (ADC) has offered three annual programs: the county wide Student Art Exhibit, SMARTS Arts in Education Program, and the Sunset Sounds Concert Series. In 2017, we added a new event entitled Art NOTION to our roster. Along with these, ADC has hosted pop-up art shows around the county. These programs, events and art shows help bring awareness to our communities on the importance of art to us all. In education, the arts enhance critical thinking, creativity, and innovation while fostering better learning skills in subjects such as math, science, language and social studies. In communities, the arts promote civic and cultural partnerships, encourage cultural diversity, build economic bases, and provide beautification. The arts play a vital role in society. We hope you’ll join us at some of these programs and events.
