Propose a Public Art Project

Submit a preliminary proposal to James River Council for Arts and Humanities for a public art project using the link below. If your idea aligns with the JRCAH goals, timeline, and budget, then we will be in touch to request further details and a formal proposal. Thank you for your interest in promoting public art in Lynchburg!


We're a volunteer organization with a small budget -- so every donation helps us bring public art projects to the greater Lynchburg area. Your donation is 100% tax deductible, and goes directly to supporting local art in the community. 


Several times a year we need an extra set of hands to help support public art projects in the community. These opportunities can include:

  • Helping during an event: set-up and take-down, ushers, ticket-takers, onsite support, etc.
  • Marketing and communication: social media support, market research, public relations, etc.
  • Fundraising: grant-writing, campaign development, etc.
  • Other: random opportunities to support local art in our community!

There is no task too small, and we can find a volunteer opportunity for anyone -- just add your name to our volunteer email list below and you'll hear from us when the opportunity arises!

We rely on the patronage of local businesses, non-profit organizations, government grants and other institutions to provide the bulk of our annual operating budget. If your organization wants to make a difference in the local community, support downtown revitalization or improve access to public art for all residents, please consider a partnership with us. We have a variety of opportunities to support projects that align with your arts priorities -- contact us today to schedule a meeting to explore options.
