Perry County Council of the Arts’ mission is to connect the community through the arts through its 4 core programs.

1. PCCA Gallery, which supports and encourages 200 Pennsylvania member artists from beginners to professionals in their creative endeavors, as well as 13 satellite exhibition spaces known as Art on Tour,

2. Landis House, PCCA’s inherited historic mansion, a venue for workshops, exhibitions, concerts, and meetings, with a collection of decorative and fine arts,

3. Arts-in-Education, providing valued residencies and enriching arts experiences for students through our partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to administer arts residencies in Perry, Juniata, Mifflin, Snyder, Union, Northumberland, and Huntingdon counties. We partner with community groups and nonprofits to provide cross-curricular learning opportunities for all ages in many settings. In so doing, we have created larger public art pieces like the Quilt Mural Trail and the Perry County Historical Mural Trail.

4. Creative Programs, including Drop-in Art, Coffeehouse, A Novel Idea, Summer Art Camp, Youth Art Day, and  Sunday Arts Hour.

Party for the Arts
