The Newnan-Coweta Art Association was incorporated June 18, 1968. Today it is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to encourage and aid artists to produce original works of art of every type and character, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, ceramics, wood craft, drawing and metal crafts; furnish the auspices for the display of such works in Coweta County and elsewhere; foster education and instruction in the creation and appreciation of works of art. The association supports the arts in Coweta schools through annual donations and scholarships to high school students pursuing the arts in college.
