The Laurel Arts League was excited to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019. Founded in 1969, this non-profit organization is dedicated to supporting and celebrating the visual and performing arts through public education and events within the city of Laurel
and throughout Jones County.
Since its beginning, the Laurel Arts League has continued to grow and expand its impact throughout our community. The Arts League is now comprised of 59 volunteer members and supports many area projects; such as the Art on Masonite Contest, the Heritage Arts Festival, the Very Special Arts Event, and the City Wide Art Contest. In 2018, the Laurel Arts League was proud to award $2,000 in scholarships to student artists within Jones county.
