Funding for Arts & Culture

Fulton County Commissioners Approve $3 Million for Arts Contracts for Services (CFS)

January 18, 2023: As part of last minute funding ammendments by Commissioners before budget approval, the county budget for arts & culture Contracts for Servicesis (CFS) was increased by $1.7 Million for a total of $3 Million. CFS is awarded through an application process to Fulton County-based nonprofit and tax-exempt arts & culture organizations, cultural institutions, colleges and universities, municipalities, and artists that produce or present arts programming open to the public.

Applications for CFS for 2023 are now closed; however, with the large amount of extra funding, there could be a second round of applications. Watch for announcements of funding opportunities and apply when they are available!

In addition, Commissioner Thorne added $20,000 for the Johns Creek Symphony, $9,000 for the Alpharetta Symphony, and $11,000 for the Lionheart School to the county budget even though all 3 organizations have been funded through CFS funding in the past.


Rogers Bridge Artwork Selected

Large public art piece announced for the Johns Creek side of the Chattahoochee River utilizing the historic Rogers Bridge steel salvage.

Artist Ilan Averbuch's proposed sculpture "The Bridge" is utilizing salvaged steel from the historic Rogers Bridge and reclaimed granite blocks. This large public art piece will be situated on the Johns Creek side of the Chattahoochee River close to the location of the old bridge and the earlier Rogers Ferry.

On each side, pieces of the old steel abstractly represent people supporting the granite arch, a symbolic connection to each other and the river throughout this area's history.

Once it was clear the historic bridge would be replaced with a new structure, the Johns Creek Historical Society, JCCVB, and others were active advocates of saving the bridge steel (a small portion pictured below) to create public art. $200,000 funding was made available for one large and a couple smaller artworks when the Fulton County Commissioners budgeted $150,000, thanks to Commissioner Liz Hausmann, and the Johns Creek City Council approved the JCCVB recommendation to allocate $50,000 of hotel/motel tax to the project.

  Building Johns Creek's Gathering Place

Keep up with the latest news of the Legacy Center Project

Facebook and Instagram

The Legacy Center of Johns Creek will be a multi-use, multi-discipline arts center designed to be used not only as a comprehensive cultural arts venue, but a place for community, social, and business events.  It is envisioned to be a strong economic driver for both the arts and the greater community of Johns Creek.  Many community and government leaders consider the Legacy Center to be a top priority and potential "anchor" in the development of a city center for Johns Creek.

As a hub of activity, the Legacy Center will support community gatherings, social and business events, plus a wide range of local and touring concerts and shows. But, at its heart, it will be a place for creating, exhibiting, rehearsing, performing and teaching the arts and culture by and for the citizens of Johns Creek.
