A Little Bit About Your Arts Council

Corry's Arts Council was founded in 1971 as a non-profit <501(c)(3)> organization dedicated to fostering the Arts and stimulating an interest in artistic and cultural activities within the Corry area. Working under the belief that by bringing exhibits, performances and productions of artistic and cultural value to our city, Corry's residents would not only be enriched, but also drawn closer together as a community.

Original Officers:

John Rossbacher
Harold Maynard
Vice Chairman
Mrs Henry Walker


Robert Wharton
Peg Seitz

Over the course of it's more than 40 years, the Arts Council has been responsible for presenting in our community such special events as:

Amahl and the Night Visitor (Erie Chamber Orchestra)
B & G Mystery Theater
Cahal Dunne

Erie Philharmonic Orchestra

 We are committed to continue to bring more of this type of entertainment to our community.

The Council activities are run by an all volunteer Board of Directors. Each Board member is elected for a three year term of office. Executive Officers are elected from the serving Board members to fill the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary/Historian.

The Council activities are governed by Bylaws which are reviewed annually and approved by majority vote of the Patrons at large.

The Council's commitment to the enrichment of the Corry community is matched only by the generosity and support of its patrons. Please consider supporting the Arts Council by becoming a Patron.
