In appreciation for the major support received from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council, the Center for Puppetry Arts is pleased to offer Fulton County Free Museum Saturdays once again in 2015. Fulton County residents, students, and Fulton County Government employees receive free admission to the Center’s museum exhibits on the first Saturday of each month. Performances and Create-A-Puppet Workshops are not included in this offer, however, an all-inclusive ticket for these events on free museum days can be purchased at a 25% discount. All tickets are available on a walk-up basis only and are subject to availability. Fulton County residents, students, and county government employees must show proof of residency/school enrollment/employment.

Download and complete the free museum admission form here and bring it along with proof of residency/school enrollment/ employment to the Center on Free Museum Saturdays.

In 1979, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners established the Fulton County Arts Council to enhance the quality of life of Fulton County Residents.  The Fulton County Arts Council and the Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture serves as Fulton County’s funding agency to support cultural programs and the agency which provides services to Fulton County based nonprofit arts organizations and Fulton County residents.  For the last 30 years Fulton County Arts & Culture has vigorously pursued quality arts programming through support and development of artists, arts organizations, arts institutions, and cultural programming for residents. This support insures that all citizens have access to the arts, which are essential to our quality of life and to the economic and social health of our communities. 

The major financial support received from Fulton County helps keep our ticket prices low and makes it possible for the Center to be one of the most accessible arts organizations in Atlanta. Each year some 65,000 free and deeply discounted tickets to Center programming are provided to schools and organizations serving underprivileged children. This is only possible because of the contributions of Center donors like Fulton County. With this support, children of all backgrounds can enjoy a unique, arts-infused educational experience. Some will be inspired to be more creative, others will find they enjoy learning and all will be touched by the magic of puppetry.

You can become a Center for Puppetry Arts supporter with a tax-deductible contribution to the Field Trip Sponsorship Program and ensure a child, who would otherwise not have the opportunity, is exposed to the arts. Make your gift today!
