The ANSON CO. ARTS COUNCIL is celebrating it's 40th Anniversary this year! Founded in 1978, we have worked to bring the arts to the community, provide arts in education, and we help maintain the Ansonia Theatre.
The ACAC is the parent of the beautifully renovated Ansonia Theatre. Founded in 1925 by Mr. L.L. Drake, the Ansonia was first a vaudeville theatre and today features live performances.
In October 2017, we opened The Drake Gallery, supporting local artists and providing a place for them to showcase their art. We offer a new featured artist each quarter and receptions are open to the public.
