About Us

The Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture assists the Fulton County Commission in the development of public policy on public support for the arts industry, makes recommendations to Fulton County Commissioners on funding the arts and generally oversees the development and implementation of publicly assisted programs that address the diverse cultural needs for Fulton County's citizens.

The department provides funding to contract arts organizations; manages Fulton County’s Public Art Program; conducts job readiness and life skills training through our Art at Work program; and provides arts instruction for children, teens and adults as well as over 100 annual cultural events through five neighborhood Arts Centers.  The department also organize master classes, workshops and other training for artists and arts organizations and operate several galleries and performance venues.

Fulton County Arts & Culture also helps oversee the Wolf Creek Amphitheater which is a world-class event venue owned and operated by Fulton County Government.  Located on a picturesque 435-acre wooded site in South Fulton County, the outdoor amphitheater accommodates 5,200 guests with reserved seating, table seating and spacious lawn seating. 

The Amphitheater’s peak performance season runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend and provides the perfect location for outdoor live music concerts, plays, performances, and festivals. 

For more than 30 years Fulton County Arts & Culture has vigorously pursued quality arts programming through support and development of artists, arts organizations, arts institutions and cultural programming for residents.
