Executive Director’s Note

Dear Friends of the United Arts Council of Catawba County,

In this issue of Art Beat, we recognize the donors of our 2022 United Arts Fund. This campaign provides unrestricted operating support for arts, science and history organizations in Catawba County. Our Funded Affiliates, who are featured on the next four pages of this publication, create educational and entertaining programs that greatly improve the quality of life in our community. If you haven’t already, please consider a donation to the 2023 United Arts Fund so that they may continue to make a positive impact on Catawba County.

Also, we hope you will join us at our Annual Meeting on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. in the Keiser Community Room. We are looking forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our cultural community and all who support it.
