“The mission of the United Arts of Cobb is to create and administer a permanent Endowment Fund which will support and enrich the artistic endeavors of the UAC members. The UAC provides opportunities for community, business and parental involvement with arts and humanities organizations,” said Sally Macaulay, president of the United Arts of Cobb.
“I firmly support the UAC mission and vision to create a stable and thriving art community which enriches all Cobb citizens’ lives. The Arts are vital to the growth and economic development of Cobb County,” said Macaulay, who became involved with United Arts of Cobb in 2008 when she became executive director of Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art.
The arts foster civic engagement, stimulate economic activity and help sustain thriving communities.
“Every resident deserves access to a variety of arts and cultural experiences. Arts education is central to the development of all children and to ongoing creative engagement for people of all ages. I believe that the arts are crucial to the economic development of a community and the arts offer a social environment that encourages excellence,” said Macaulay of Kennesaw.
Event proceeds will go toward a $10 million endowment fund whose interest will be delivered to United Arts of Cobb members through a grant process. Some of the founding partners of United Arts of Cobb are the Georgia Symphony Orchestra (formerly Cobb Symphony Orchestra), The Georgia Ballet, Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, Pandean Players, The TellTale Theatre and Theatre in the Square.
“These grants help member organizations continue their work of inspiring our youth through education outreach programs, and offering affordable artistic experience to all members of the community,” Macaulay said.
The Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel and Convention Center is at 2450 Galleria Parkway SE, Atlanta.
