Our organization has served this area for more than 50 years with the mission of improving quality of life by being a hub for artistic experiences that enrich, educate, and entertain Wilson County and beyond. With a fresh strategic plan, establishment of our core values, and the opening of our new Wilson Arts Center at 204 Nash Street South, this is the perfect time to refresh our organization’s symbol to align with that work. The new logo reinforces our core beliefs that the arts are for everyone, and that they bring people together and strengthen our communities.
