Our mission is to is to advocate the role of arts and culture in Putnam County, provide arts education to both in and out of school learners, and to continue to enrich the quality of life in our community through the cultivation, presentation, and preservation of cultural facilities and events.
The Putnam County Commissioners and the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs recognized The Arts Council of Greater Palatka Inc. as the official Local Arts Agency (LAA) representative of Putnam County in April of 1975, the year it was incorporated as a 501-C3 non-profit organization.
The Arts Council serves as an umbrella organization for the arts in Putnam County. In 1992 The Arts Council was given the Larimer Building located at 216 Reid Street, Palatka as our new art center which once was the public library. The building was renamed the Larimer Arts Center.
