Our Mission

The Franklin County Arts Council is a nonprofit community organization passionate about Arts and Arts education in our diverse community.

The mission of Franklin County Arts Council is to promote and encourage the development and advancement of the arts; to cultivate an appreciation of the arts; and to promote funding and coordination of arts activities county-wide


Our History

The Franklin County Arts Council was incorporated in1979 and had its beginning in the International Whistlers Convention. In 2014, the Whistlers Convention moved to other venues and The Franklin County Arts Council focused on encouraging, not only the appreciation of arts in Franklin County, but also to provide a public facility where artists would have a venue to showcase their artistry.

The Quilt Trails of the Tar and Roanoke Rivers is an outreach program of the Franklin County Arts Council designed to capture the history of our community through the display of quilt blocks on historic buildings and structures in Franklin and surrounding counties.

While navigating the Quilt Trails in Central and Eastern North Carolina, travelers can enjoy the area’s art, history, agriculture, and scenic byways. What began as a local endeavor has spread from Franklin County to 7 additional counties and is still growing.

The plan is to follow the Rivers to the coast and include all Eastern North Carolina.
