ARTS Oil City invites all community members to help support local arts initiatives! Visual, Performing, and Literary Arts are a very important part of the legacy of our community and are equally important to our future. Here are a few things you can do:
• Keep up to date on arts related events, educational opportunities for creatives, exhibits in the area and at regional art museums in Pittsburgh, Erie, Cleveland and Buffalo, and lots more information, by following on Facebook: Facebook.com/artsoilcity
• If you know creative professionals in other parts of the country, tell them about the Artist Relocation Program. Oil City is a great place to live for those seeking affordable housing, studio and display space, a quiet community with small-town charm, beautiful river views, bike trails and nearby forests. Encourage your big city artist friends who may be frustrated with high cost of living to plan a scouting trip and check out what we have to offer.
• Join the mailing list. Even if you have been on a mailing list in the past, update your information! ARTS Oil City is working hard to update and improve our communications and wants to make sure everyone who is interested is included. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “mailing list”. You can leave the email blank or tell them a little about your interests.
