Arts Count Celebration
Arts Count celebrates the essential public and private partnerships that fuel the arts, engages business and foundation leaders as well as elected officials to be advocates for arts and culture, and acknowledges the year’s grant recipients.
Free to members of the Arts Council and grant recipients, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council event honors the Project Stream and Program Stream recipients awarded state arts grants through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts.
Arts Count 2017
On Wednesday, October 18th from 5:30-7:30 pm the National Museum of Industrial History will host the Lehigh Valley Arts Council’s 12th annual Arts Count – an award ceremony, arts rally, and membership reception. Join us and meet the producers of the next community arts projects coming to the region!
Presenting grant awards – big check style – is the event’s defining spectacle, but equally enticing will be the interactive exhibits around every corner of the museum.

Arts Count 2016
On October 19, 2016, we rallied together to celebrate the creative realm of the arts in our community and honor the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts grant recipients. The event was held at Smooth-On, Inc. in Macungie, PA, and guests toured the impressive facility, took part in mold-making, and received professional quality scrapes, scars, and scabs makeup.
