Liberty Arts’ Mission and Vision
In 1985 a group of artists, writers, philosophers, and community members began informal meetings to discuss possible mutual activities, which would employ the arts to address social issues. The group became Liberty Painting Corporation, a 501(c)(3) public benefit nonprofit. The primary purpose of Liberty Painting Corporation, is reflected in the mission statement:
To serve a charitable and educational purpose by enriching the cultural heritage and communications among all peoples of the world through creations of works of fine arts and other art forms.
The vision for Liberty Arts is to:
- Exhibit works from a broad base of individuals and groups in our community, and to offer a venue to guest artists bringing new work and ideas to Siskiyou County
- Provide educational outreach programs, workshop space and facilities for artists, students and community members
- Broaden awareness of cultural achievements through performance and exhibition
- Offer community events, which expand appreciation of cinematography, videography and photography through exhibition, lecture and informal discussion
