State and Local Partner


YoloArts is the designated State-Local Partner with the California Arts Council. Confirmed each year by the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, YoloArts serves as the central agency for the arts in Yolo County. We work to collaborate with and support strategic partners, both public and private, to provide the community with resources and access to the creation, exhibition and preservation of the diverse arts and culture of Yolo County.

Board of Directors

YoloArts is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. These civic minded leaders are representative of the community and bring diverse professional expertise to the definition of and fulfillment of the YoloArts’ mission. The Board of Directors is responsible for governing the organization through fiscal oversight, strategic vision and policy.

Directors are elected to the Board annually, each serving a three-year term. If you are interested in serving on the Board contact Alison Flory at aflory@yoloarts.org for an application and informational packet.
