The mission of the Port Orford Arts Council is two-fold, directed toward the artists and toward the general public in our community of Port Orford, Langlois, and north Curry County. We seek to cultivate the arts in our community by creating opportunities for local artists to present their work, network with each other, and learn from each other. We also seek to enrich the culture of our local community by facilitating exhibitions, concerts, readings, and other events that present recognized artists to the public, and by offering professional workshops in the arts.
