The WCAC serves residents of all ages in this diverse and growing county in the Cumberland Valley, nestled in the gently rolling mountains of western Maryland.

The WCAC provides a wide variety of programming; technical assistance; funding opportunities; and encouragement to arts organizations and individual artists, developing connections between them and those who desire to have art in their lives.
