We support the Visual and Performing Arts in Butts County


The Jackson-Butts County Council for the Arts is a small group of fun folks who go out of their way to support the arts and the artists of Butts County.  We organize two art shows each year; The Fine Arts Festival, and Butts County Creates.  We also support music events, and offer scholarships.The next time you visit the halls of the Butts County Administration building, or City Hall, you can view artwork from our permanent collection.  We'd love for you to join us, become a member today!
