MarinArts makes it easy to discover and participate in creative and cultural events

disciplines, MarinArts provides an free, easy-to-use platform to raise audience
awareness. For the community, MarinArts is the one-click resource to discover
arts and entertainment events, and arts education opportunities in Marin County.
Launched quietly in early 2017, MarinArts is making an impact as a cultural events
resource and an advocate for the arts.
History. After the Marin Arts Council folded in 2011, artists and arts leaders came
to believe that Marin County needed an umbrella for all of the arts—visual, theater,
film, literary, and music, as well as arts education. Executive Director Mary O’Mara
of MarinLink (the community project incubator and fiscal sponsor), Marin Arts
Council past president Pam Morton, and a dedicated group of arts community
volunteers led six years of planning. MarinArts is the result.
MarinArts is powered by Artsopolis, a project of Silicon Valley Creates. The
platform is used by arts communities large and small throughout the United States.
