The Elk County Council on the Arts (ECCOTA) is dedicated to promoting the cultural enrichment of the residents of Elk County by expanding the opportunity for public participation in the arts.
The Council’s goal is to enhance the lives of county residents and the various local arts by offering experiences in the arts, providing educational opportunity and advice, and by supporting performers, musicians, artists, artisans and writers.
From its humble beginnings as the Elk County Artists league in the 1980s, ECCOTA has grown into a county-wide organization with many events taking place at its location on Main Street in Ridgway.
Events for this month include the Anything Art July 22 to August 10 Artists ages 18 and younger can drop off their artwork at ECCOTA from July 15-20th during business hours to be featured in the show.
The public is invited to view the work and vote for their favorite artwork.
