The mission of the Mountain View Arts Alliance is to serve as a support group for fund-raising, programming and facility input to the staff of The Art Place; to assist Cobb County in making our community a more desirable place to live by promoting and offering multi-disciplinary arts opportunities for the general public; and to promote and nurture arts and cultural endeavors in the East Cobb Community.
The Mountain View Arts Alliance (MVAA), was created in 1993 to assist with offering programs to the community in the East Cobb area of Cobb County.
The home of the MVAA is The Art Place-Mountain View, a county-operated arts facility located in East Cobb. Volunteers assisting with programs at The Art Place created the MVAA as a non-profit support organization for the arts center and the surrounding area of East Cobb. As a non-profit organization, the MVAA could create its own programs, assist with TAP programs, lend assistance with capital projects needed for the center and offer support for new projects. In the last ten years MVAA has been able to raise over $46,000 in funds to enhance programs, match grants, provide equipment and promote special events for The Art Place and the East Cobb Community.
Mountain View Arts Alliance was established in 1993 as a volunteer support group for the arts in Cobb County. Membership in MVAA is open to anyone who is interested in supporting the arts in East Cobb. The MVAA board is the governing body of the arts alliance and consists of up to 15 volunteer members who have agreed to donate their time and talents in support of the arts at TAP. Members of the board direct the activities of MVAA, plan programs for the upcoming year, volunteer at events, approve expenditures, and function in other ways as requested by the coordinator of TAP. We welcome your input through comment cards, by speaking to a board member and by attending meetings or joining our group.
We appreciate your invaluable support for our activities here at TAP and welcome your suggestions for new programs. Together we can make this a great place for arts education, entertainment, enjoyment and enlightening experiences.
