Staff Report

The Buellton Arts and Culture Committee is seeking artists and creative people to apply for grants to create projects to enhance the artistic and/or cultural experiences of the community.

Grant funds may cover the cost of materials, artist time, advertising and print materials, and anything related to the production of a successful arts and culture project.  Project grant applications and a quick reference guide can be found at

Past arts and culture projects have included art workshops, multi-day events, temporary and permanent public art displays and educational exhibitions. Currently, there are several exciting projects underway such as a mural series by artist Liz Alvarez showcasing Buellton parks and historical scenes, the installation of mosaic tiled pillars at the entrance to the SYV Botanic Garden, a Walk into Wildfire immersive exhibition and community event, and a sculptural display honoring our veterans. 

If you’re interested in applying for an arts and culture grant but don’t have an idea for a project, committee members would be happy to offer suggestions and help you brainstorm.
