In 2011 and throughout our nearly 50-year history, The Arts Council has thrived thanks to the support of our loyal volunteers, past and current board members, and generous community donors. As this difficult year draws to a close, though, your commitment to The Arts Council is more important than ever before. We hope you will consider making a special year-end gift to The Arts Council this year, as gifts in any amount will help to sustain TAC’s long-standing programs and services to advance arts and culture in Huntsville/Madison County.

In addition to TAC’s efforts to support and promote the work of over 110 member arts and cultural organizations and individual artists, highlights of our 2012 programming include:

·         Arts Education: The Arts Council’s 2012 arts education programming includes a comprehensive audit of arts education offerings in all area public schools, a free professional development workshop for 275 teachers from Madison County, Madison City, and Huntsville City school districts to use the arts to teach across the curriculum, and the 2nd annual free “Spring Into Summer Activities Fair” on March 3, 2012 at Sci-Quest where children will enjoy performances and hands-on activities as parents gather information about upcoming camps and events for the spring and summer breaks.

·         Panoply 2012: This April, TAC will celebrate 30 years of Panoply, and – as the festival opens on April 27th – we will also remember those who suffered in the 2011 tornadoes while honoring our community’s First Responders. During the weekend we will also recognize Gold Star Families and Active Duty Military, and we will look back on 30 years of Huntsville’s most entertaining and inclusive community festival.

·         Concerts in the Park: From June thru August, Huntsville’s popular free, community concerts will return to Big Spring Park with a mix of musical entertainment for all ages.

·         SPACES Biennial Sculpture Trail: As the lead partner for the community’s new sculpture trail, The Arts Council is already working to bring over 30 new sculptures to Huntsville/Madison County in fall 2012 for SPACES 2012-14.

As you can see, The Arts Council is prepared to continue its broad-based programs and services in 2012 to support Huntsville/Madison County’s quality of life and economic development by advancing arts and culture in our community, but after this difficult year we do need your support. Contributions at any level are fully tax-deductible, and we hope you – our loyal volunteers and long-time supporters – will play a role in our success in 2012!
