rt, music, science and culture: it’s all better up here. Flagstaff is rich in the arts and sciences, and the Flagstaff Arts Council is at the center of it all. We get you connected to all the action: festivals, concerts, workshops, dazzling performances and more.
At the Coconino Center for the Arts, the Arts Council hosts ground-breaking art exhibitions, phenomenal performers, and exciting events year round. Throughout Flagstaff we serve the larger arts and sciences community with grant funding, promotional support, advocacy and community-wide initiatives and programming.
