South Cobb Arts Alliance Earns NEA Grant

The South Cobb Arts Alliance (SCAA) has recently received a Challenge America grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The grant will support a programmatic and marketing outreach project to promote community engagement with the Arts.

The project, A Shared Community of Art: Reconnecting Artists, Art Educators, Families and Businesses, focuses on expanding community-based programming and SCAA communications and publicity activities. New events and activities are planned that will reach each demographic in our community and welcome our many new residents.

“We are delighted to have been selected as a recipient of this prestigious grant and proud to have our volunteers’ hard work and dedication recognized on the national level,” said SCAA President, Sandra Miller.

Since 1972, SCAA has enriched the area with arts and cultural opportunities that might otherwise be unavailable locally. We offer a wide range of programs and activities including visual art exhibits, art education classes, concerts, and theatre in the Mable House Arts Center, the Historic Mable House, and the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre, as well as community venues.

SCAA is a leading force in the arts and cultural environment of Cobb County. This strength is made possible through the partnership of the SCAA with Cobb P.A.R.K.S., Cobb County Board of Commissioners, area businesses and volunteers working toward a common goal – the recognition and support of the area’s arts and culture.
