Rogers Art Council

The initial planning has begun for establishment of a Rogers arts council.

The proposal will be presented to the Rogers City Council and the Historical District Commission.

There has been determination as to whether council should be a nonprofit organization or a city committee. As a nonprofit organization, the council could apply for grants, something it couldn’t do if it were a city committee.
