About Us

The United Arts Council of Catawba County was formed as the Hickory Arts Council in 1960.  We were re-incorporated in 1979 as the Catawba County Council for the Arts and we adopted our current name in 2006 to reflect our partnerships with our vibrant cultural organizations and our supportive local government.

Each year, we conduct a United Arts Fund campaign which provides operating support for our Funded Affiliate organizations.  We are a major source of grants for organizations and individual artists. 

Our offices are located in the West Wing, a newly renovated building located on the SALT Block.

We are supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, the governmental entities of Catawba County, City of Hickory, City of Conover, City of Newton, City of Claremont and Township of Maiden, as well as corporations, foundations and individuals in our area.

Thank you to all our supporters, who help make the arts a part of the life of every citizen of Catawba County, as well as a cornerstone of economic development and education.
