The Fort Atkinson Arts Council, a 501 C (3) non-profit organization, is committed to Fort Atkinson’s local community by supporting all art forms including visual arts, theater arts, music, writing, film, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and multi-disciplinary art.  Founded in 1983, volunteers have revived our commitment by co-hosting the Annual Winter Arts & Farmers Market, partnering with the Friends of Lorine Niedecker by supporting the Wisconsin Poetry Festival, partnering with the Fort Farmers Market with our Kids Art Tent on Saturdays, partnering with the Wisconsin Arts Board Jefferson County arts network, and through general assistance of arts and artists in the Fort Atkinson area.
