Working to advance and preserve the arts at the center of Vermont communities.
Don’t be left out of upcoming statewide and regional reports on arts and culture in Vermont! The Vermont Arts Council, in partnership with the Vermont Community Foundation is participating in the Vermont Cultural Data Project (Vermont CDP). The Vermont CDP offers a powerful online management tool designed to strengthen the arts and cultural sector. Its unique system enables arts and cultural organizations to track trends and benchmark their progress through sophisticated reporting tools while gathering reliable comprehensive data that grantmakers, researchers, and advocates can use to better understand the sector. In Vermont we’re excited about CDP’s potential to articulate the real impact of cultural funding in the state. The Vermont Arts Council intends on using the Vermont Cultural Data Project data for important research and we want you to be included!
Are you new to the CDP? Do you need a refresher? Attend a free, online orientation webinar!

Your eye will be drawn in and your brain will go into overdrive when you view the work of Mark Goodwin, now on display in our Spotlight Gallery. Goodwin's work is an investigation of drawing that hovers between painting and sculpture. Through a series of folds, scores, and mark making, he creates enigmatic work. The Spotlight Gallery is open to the public Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., and is located in the corridor and conference room of our offices at 136 State Street in Montpelier. CLICK HERE to read more about the exhibit.
Join the Vermont Public Radio project, "Art Hounds!"
Art Hounds creates the opportunity for you to rave about each others' work on the radio and shine a light on the arts scene in your community. All you have to do is click here and let VPR know about a concert, performance, exhibit or event that you want to rave about and recommend. No event is too small or too large to be considered. It can be happening this week, this month or all season - in Vermont, the Upper Valley, New York or Quebec.
The only stipulation is that it can't be your own work or work you're professionally, financially or personally associated with in any way. Use this form to tell VPR who you are and post your recommendation. It can be an art exhibit, a local theater production, a dance performance, CD release or a festival. And you can call the VPR Art Hounds hotline at (802) 778-9585 to record your suggestions, too! Each week, VPR will select nominations to be recorded for air.
Hear Art Hounds on Thursday afternoon at 4:50 as part of VPR's weekly arts segment and again on Friday mornings at 7:55, during "Morning Edition." You can also find the episode information each week at VPR.net.
Publicize your events by listing them in the Vermont Arts Calendar. The Vermont Arts Calendar is not only a FREE way of reaching thousands of people, but it also gets your events distributed to dozens of publications in the Northeast and throughout the country. To get the broadest exposure for your event you should list no later than six weeks before the event. Click here for more information about the Arts Calendar, or to enter your event.
Have you checked out our online classifieds recently? We like to think of it as a sort of a "craigslist" for the arts in Vermont. You can both search and list information on jobs, calls to artists and workshops. There's a section for materials available or wanted, and another for studio space. The listings are always changing so check it out today.
