Transylvania County is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. The beauty of this area has been the fertile ground for our thriving arts community. Late in 2007 the Transylvania Community Arts Council, along with the NC Tourism office, brought together many individuals involved in the arts here to form a new entity whose purpose is to promote all of the arts in our County. That entity is called Transylvania Arts Promotion ("TAP"). It is composed of individual artists, musicians, writers, performers, and representatives from the Transylvania Community Arts Council, Brevard Music Center, The Porter Center for the Performing Arts, Brevard Little Theatre, Heart of Brevard, Brevard Chamber of Commerce, Transylvania County Tourism Development Authority, arts organizations, arts businesses, and venues that host the arts.
The TC Arts Council would like to thank all of those who have made TAP possible. Thanks to: Lessa Brandon, Tammy Hopkins, Joan VanOrman, Carol Dodson, Sue Hershey, Patricia Travis, Joe Narsavage, Lynne Warner, Gary Heisey, Patti Black, and representatives from the Brevard Music Center, the Porter Center for the Performing Arts, Chamber of Commerce, the Heart of Brevard, and all the artists and arts organizations that have bought into the concept of promoting ALL ARTS in the County.
