On February 28, 1972, a group of fifty-two local residents created the McDowell Arts Council Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. These people were proud of their local, artistic heritage and wanted to share this legacy while promoting local artists and enriching cultural life in McDowell County. Thirty-five years later, the arts council continues to encourage local artists providing gallery space, a retail shop, teaching opportunities and theater space for the performing arts.
