Plumas Arts was established in 1981, as a tax-exempt, private public benefit corporation that serves as the local arts planning and primary programming agency for our county.

Since its inception, the Plumas County Board of Supervisors has been authorized Plumas Arts to serve as the county representative to the California Arts Council's State-Local Partnership Program where, through an annual grant application process, they have ranked consistently as one of California's model local arts agencies.
