The mission of the Pocono Arts Council is to build our community artistically and culturally by providing leadership, service, and education.
The Pocono Arts Council in Stroudsburg has brought local artists and the community together since 1975. This nonprofit acts as an umbrella organization for local artists and art organizations. They also host exhibits and events to get residents and visitors involved in the arts.
The Pocono Arts Council offers several programs and services to enrich the area’s cultural scene. They promote public gallery spaces throughout Monroe County and maintain the ARTSPACE Gallery. They also hold special exhibitions and studio classes. Their annual events include the Pocono Mountains of Art Open Studio Tour, Spring for the Arts, the Stroudsburg Arts Festival, the Festival of Wood, the Pocono State Craft Festival and the Starving Artist Mac & Cheese Bake-Off.
You can help keep the arts at the heart of the Monroe County community. Support the Pocono Arts Council by donating, becoming a member or volunteering your time.
