The FOA seeks to enhance the quality of life of our community throught the arts. Located in the heart of downtown Jonesboro, The Foundation of Arts is a non-profit organization, open year-round, serving the community through arts education, live entertainment, and outreach activities to the underserved.
The Foundation of Arts is the “front porch” of our community. It is a gathering place, a visitor attraction, a landmark, and an anchor for the arts. We exist to educate and deliver a message that will encourage people to consider their own purpose as artists, embracing creative thought and diversity. We are not just a center for creativity we are also a bridge connecting people, the past, the present, and the future as we are housed, in part, in the historic Forum Theater.
