About Flagstaff Arts Council

Flagstaff Arts Council (FAC) is a nationally recognized nonprofit that seeks to promote, strengthen, and advocate for the arts throughout Flagstaff. As the official art, science, and culture agency for the city, FAC builds strong connections between artists, practitioners, nonprofits, government, and the business community. We believe art is transformative, science and art enrich each other, and that art builds community.

This year, FAC is at a pivotal moment in its history and is embarking on a bold new strategic plan to catalyze the arts ecosystem, foster diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to promote the integration of arts and science throughout the community.

FAC is supported by a 20+ member volunteer board of directors, committees, advisory groups, and dozens of volunteers annually. Seven staff members work on a broad cross-section of projects, all designed to support a vibrant and creative city.

FAC is most well-known for the “red” carpet Viola Awards which honors over 40 stand-out community members and organizations, signature exhibitions including upcoming Parched which explores water scarcity and conflict in the southwest, the Art & Science Grant Program which awards over $350,000 annually to more than 40 organizations, downtown’s First Friday Artwalk, and year-round arts programming at the Coconino Center for the Arts.
