Harford County Cultural Arts Board was founded in 1973 to “Preserve, Enhance, and Promote the Culture of Harford County, Maryland."
As the official county arts agency, Harford County Cultural Arts Board is the premier local resource for arts organizations, independent artists, and the audiences of Harford County, Maryland. The government-appointed board provides advocacy and administrative support, sponsors workshops, events, and promotional opportunities, and encourages and invests in the advancement of the arts for the community. Activities are made possible by a Community Arts Development grant from Maryland State Arts Council, an agency of the State of Maryland under the authority of the Department of Commerce, Division of Tourism, Film and the Arts. Since December 2015, Harford County Cultural Arts Advisory Board has operated under the auspices of Harford County Public Library.
