There are an array of arts and cultural nonprofits in Georgia. Some produce art, some preserve and present art and others celebrate local talent and provide a sense of local identity. From symphonies and ballet companies to community theaters, museums, literary groups and historic sites the arts in Georgia provide entertainment, produce creativity, and celebrates our “sense of place”.
