GAINESVILLE, GA (May 24, 2012) – The Arts Council, Inc. today announced it will unveil a new company logo in celebration of its 40th anniversary on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. The new logo will be seen on the organization’s website, email marketing campaigns, and all printed forms of communications on that date.
The organization’s first logo, a symbol of the performing arts, including ballet, orchestra and theatre, was created in 1972 by Sawyer, Riley & Compton. The new logo symbolizes the organization’s expansion into all forms of performing arts, as well as visual, literary, and film arts. Created by Morton, Vardeman & Carlson, The Arts Council’s new logo is said to also give the brand a more relevant and fresh look for its ever expanding market.
“While keeping our standard of excellence intact, we wanted our new image to maintain our core mission, which is to serve Northeast Georgia through enhancing, educating and expanding public interest in the Arts, while also reflecting the breadth of our arts programming and the excitement of our arts patrons,” said Gladys Wyant, Executive Director of The Arts Council, Inc. ” We think our new logo has done just that.”
Since its incorporation in 1972, The Arts Council has significantly expanded its programming, developed beautiful venues, and increased its value and relevance to its customers by presenting nationally and internationally famed artists to the communities of Northeast Georgia. Today, The Arts Council serves over 35 local affiliate arts organizations, 51 schools, 300+ members and over 12,000 patrons.
The Arts Council is proud to be participating in the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce “Buy Local Business Expo”. The expo is Hall County’s premier business networking event, featuring dozens of businesses and non-profits. This event is FREE and open to the public, so why wouldn’t you come? It will be a great way to make new business connections, support Hall County, and meet new people!
