Promoting the

Positive Power of Art

For Over 50 Years

We Support Emerging and Established Artists

Founded in 1967, Racine Arts Council encourages, supports and advocates on behalf of emerging and established artists, artistic groups in our community, and young people interested in the arts.

Racine Arts Council is dedicated to promoting local visual artists by providing emerging and mid-career artists an opportunity to curate and/or exhibit in our ArtSpace Gallery.

Our ArtSeed grant program encourages and enhances the arts in the Racine area and fosters excitement, support and growth in the arts in our community.  Artists from Racine County may apply for an ArtSeed grant to help fund projects.

Artistic Groups

In Our Community

Our ArtSeed grant program helps foster the arts in our community by funding arts related projects by local non-profit organizations. Past grant recipients have included BONK!, Choral Arts Society, Racine Art Museum, Over Our Head Players, and many others.
