The Yazoo Arts Council was formed in 1977 by a group of like-minded individuals. The original Council worked to promote the arts in Yazoo County through events and activities centered in the arts. After a decades-long period of inactivity, a new group of art-centered Yazooans revived the Yazoo Arts Council in 2018.

Our Story

Our non-profit organization is working to encourage, support, and promote local art activities and local artists. Our funds, generated through annual memberships, donations, and ticket sales for some events, are used for these purposes. We hope you will join us on our Mission.


Local business owners, artists, and professionals make up our Board of Directors. Their hard work and long hours of service along with the support of our members make our goals possible.
