Magnolia Arts Council (also known as Magnolia Arts) was incorporated in 1963 as a non-profit organization. It supported as its main event the Side Walk Art Show at the annual Magnolia Blossom Festival held in May. 2010 marked our 60th Annual Side Walk Art Show. Over the years the organization has grown to support the arts in all its forms in Magnolia and Columbia County, making the arts a vital part of the community. To do this, the corporation sponsors events throughout the year that give all members of the community a chance to express themselves through the arts, and also brings arts events to the people of Columbia County. It also encourages and assists existing organizations sponsoring cultural and artistic activities. Its activities are reflected in its mission statement, "Bringing art to the people and bringing art out of the people in Columbia County." Magnolia Arts Council became a 5013(c) in 1977.
