Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) was founded in 1998, by a group of artists who recognized a need to promote and grow the arts & culture sector in Rossland. The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture’s goal to ‘enhance lifestyles through creative expression’ is achieved by providing year-round, diverse and accessible arts and culture programming and events.
Rossland is a small and vibrant, sports and recreation centered community of 3700 people. It has an equally vibrant arts community of 150+ visual, performing and literary artists. Our vision is to make Rossland as well known for its arts and culture as it is for its sports and recreation.
It was time for an update of our logo. Thanks to a local and talented freelance graphic artist, Liz Arsenault, we have a great new logo. We will be updating all of our materials to reflect our new design.
The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and Tourism Rossland have leased a new sculpture, which will be on display for one year at the corner of Columbia and Spokane. “Gotta Practice First” is a bronze sculpture of a young girl playing violin, created by artistic duo Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby.Public Art - Sculptures
