New California Arts Council Website Makes Debut!

The California Arts Council is pleased to launch its new website. With a sleek new "magazine" look, updated graphics and fonts, and a more flexible technical "back end," we're hoping to be able to offer an easier viewing and searching experience for users. The navigation tabs were reconceived and reorganized, but you'll find much of the information from the former site, sometimes edited and reformatted, in this new site and sometimes under different navigation tabs. The new expanded footer will help you find your way, too.

Happy Holidays!

Cookies on the "share" table, stockings hung on cubicles, garland festooning...and obscuring... the art on walls---all signs of the holidays at the California Arts Council offices. Something similar where you are? As we celebrate the season, we also want to wish all grantees, partners, associates, ArtBeat subscribers and website viewers the very best for warm, loving, cheerful holidays. Without you how less rich our state would be. For you and your work, we are grateful.[Note that not only is this the unveiling of our new ArtBeat format, it's also the last edition of the year. Look for the January 5 edition in your Inbox next year!]
