Support Lycoming Arts

Williamsport Murals

For 60+ years Lycoming Arts has served the people by promoting the arts in Lycoming County. For the the future, our goal is to improve the arts and our community by enhancing the strong relationship between arts and economic development.

We help to create the cultural quality of life that supports the great work that our county and city governments, our Chamber of Commerce, and our Visitors Bureau do to generate economic development in Lycoming County.

We work to build statewide recognition of our excellence in the arts.

How? First Fridays and the 2008 Governor’s Award have been powerful lessons on how cataloging and promoting our arts can have a dramatic effect on the way the world views our area’s quality of life. An abundant cultural life is an important aspect of a community’s ability to attract business and succeed economically.

Cultural tourism is also one of the state’s greatest sources of income, and we are organizing our varied and rich assets to assist the Visitors Bureau in marketing us as a charming cultural destination.
