MarinArts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for all of the arts in Marin County. MarinArts promotes the arts and culture of Marin County through its online platform, and occasional special productions such as Poetry Out Loud.
MarinArts makes it easy to discover and participate in creative and cultural events throughout our community, including arts events and educational opportunities for all ages. For Marin arts and entertainment providers and Marin artists of all 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), former Program Manager for the Marin Arts Council Pam Morton, and a dedicated group of arts community volunteers led six years of planning. MarinArts is the result.
