After more than a year of meeting to discuss how to advance visual, performing and literary arts in the community, the Arts Council of Washington (ACOW) is up and running.

“Washington is ready for an arts council,” said Nora Bellows, board president, who also runs the Washington Academy of Arts, located on Elm Street.
