About Us

About Us Content Celebrate the arts and embrace the cultural diversity of  Prince George’s County and valuable the contributions of the artists and arts organizations who make this an electrifying and inspiring place to live. M-NCPPC’s wide variety of arts programs and services let residents explore visual art, music, dance, theater and literary arts as enthusiastic spectators or eager students, and artists are encouraged to share their work with the community in many ways.

M-NCPPC manages art centers that offer art exhibitions of emerging and established artists, dance and music concerts, performances for children and families, teas, festivals, and classes in the visual and performing arts.  Programs such as Café Groove, Expressions and The Prince George’s Children’s Theatre encourage youth to explore their own creativity.  Several performance and exhibition spaces are available for rental by community-based arts organizations.  M-NCPPC partners with other agencies to provide festivals and other arts related activities, and county-based artists can receive information on professional development, exhibition, performance and teaching opportunities.

In addition to events at arts centers, many arts activities are available at M-NCPPC community centers, historic sites and museums, nature centers and parks.  Please explore SMARTlink categories of Lifestyle and Learning, Crafts and Hobbies, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts for programs that require registration, as well as Places to Go and Things to Do for additional art happenings.
