Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council
For more than 35 years, the Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council (PCAC),
has supported the visual, literary, and performing arts and arts facilities.
By collaborating with other arts organizations, civic partners, and those passionate
about the arts, PCAC has reached thousands of school age children with outstanding
arts education programs, provided one-time scholarships to emerging young artists,
brought concert bands to the elementary and high schools, and helped provide
arts facilities to the community.
PCAC is committed to the belief that the arts nurture the spirit of those
in our communities. Our mission is to advocate for
all the arts, provide leadership, educate,
and provide grants and quality
programming to Pleasanton to ensure that present and future generations
have access to the arts.
PCAC was incorporated in 1974 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization dedicated to encouraging and promoting an interest in and appreciation for all forms
of art. At first facilities-oriented, PCAC rallied community support for the
construction of the Cultural Arts Building on Black Avenue
to house arts activities. This building is now owned and operated by the City
During the 1980s, PCAC worked with the City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton
Unified School District to help raise over $800,000 in order to renovate the
then-closed Amador Theater.
The Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council played an integral role in bringing the
new Firehouse Arts Center to Pleasanton. Fundraising was spearheaded
by the sister organization, the Pleasanton Cultural Arts Foundation (PCAF).
It was because of PCAF's fundraising efforts, grassroots networking and vision
that eventually a partnership was formed with the City of Pleasanton to save
the old Firehouse in historic downtown Pleasanton and turn it into the new
Firehouse Arts Center.
