Who Are We?
We Value the expression of all art forms as a means to strengthen the entire community – young and old, and its economy.
We Envision an artistic community within Winsted that inspires a vibrant downtown with successful businesses and a culturally engaged citizenry.
Think about the times you’ve been involved in changing or developing something that’s important to you. What were your motivations to commit your time and effort? How did the progress make you feel? What impacts on others’ lives did you see? Bottom line is — such work is rewarding!
In 2008, a small group began meeting to discuss development of an arts organization in Winsted. Several of us participated in the Blandin Community Leadership Program in October 2007, and came back with a vision for the Arts in Winsted. The group has morphed and grown and in early 2010, we officially formed the Winsted Arts Council (WAC), complete with Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, a Board of Directors and Officers, and a federal ID number. We have since obtained 501©3 status.
