The Hernando County Fine Arts Council (HCFAC) is bringing the arts “full circle” to Hernando County. They’re doing this through the establishment of the Arts Circle, which is for patrons who wish to support the arts in this area, through the giving of monetary donations. A news release stated that the mission of the Arts Circle is to unite individuals to provide for a stronger impact of their donations in the support of visual, literary, performance, and digital arts of Hernando County. All membership donations will be used for HCFAC projects, are tax deductible, and will be renewable annually if you choose to do so.

Arts Circle memberships will be accepted in person at the hospitality tent posted at the council’s Arts in the Park event on March 12th & 13th at Tom Varn Park in Brooksville. You can also join the Arts Circle online beginning March 15th at www.hernandoarts.org/artscircle.

Arts Circle Membership Levels are:
– Bronze – $50
– Silver – $100
– Gold – $250
– Platinum – $500
– Diamond – $1000 +

“Arts Circle donations will give individuals the opportunity to assist the council as we encourage, promote, and support all of the creative arts in Hernando County. We can do more if we combine our monetary resources and volunteer hours,’’ said Arts Circle Project Chair Diane Ziemski, who is also a Mid-Southern Watercolorists signature member and Florida Watercolor Society member.
