RIDDLE: What Williamsport creature has many tentacles but one body? ANSWER: THE LYCOMING ARTS! The Heart of Williamsport initiative and the County Comprehensive Plan both recognize Lycoming Arts as a major contributor to the economic growth and cultural vitality of our community. Established in 1960, Lycoming Arts (the Williamsport Lycoming Arts Council) has provided decades of leadership through its signature programming: FIRST FRIDAY, in partnership with the Williamsport Business Association, unites the community through art, music, food and local artisan products. PublicARTWORKS. This initiative produces art in visible public spaces. ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: Our partnership with The Pajama Factory/Factory Works makes recruitment of artist to our community a reality. Cultural Trails is a joint initiative between Lycoming Arts and the Susquehanna Greenway partnership. It is dedicated to strengthening connections between the river and bordering towns/cities through art, culture and local heritage. ART IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. Our newest initiative brings an Art2Go! Cart to all corners of our community. It was created to share the imaginative, therapeutic and entertaining powers of the arts with all ages--children through senior citizens. When the arts thrive, the human connection is more profound. Community life prospers. If you believe that the arts enrich the intellect, deepen emotions, stir the soul, provide hope and transform lives, please consider supporting Lycoming Arts. THANK YOU!
