The California Arts Council has created a series of short-form, documentary videos that celebrate creative expression in California to be released online. The series of videos follow art programming across California, from rural towns to some of the state’s largest cities, which are making positive impacts in communities.
“California is deeply rooted in art and creativity. We are thrilled to show how art is connecting and driving communities forward in our state through traditional and new forms of creative expression,” said Craig Watson, Director of the California Arts Council.
An overview of the series was previewed at the California Art Council’s 40th Anniversary Celebration on January 27, 2016 at the Crest Theater in Sacramento among policy makers, community leaders and art advocates. The videos will be released online on the California Arts Council’s Facebook and Twitter pages January to March 2016.
From the role of art in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) to preserving traditional and folk arts, the series of videos show the wide reach of California Arts Council’s grantees and partnerships to advance arts in California for everyone. The videos were produced by Los Angeles-based, For Example Media.
