Lead Partner: Arts Herndon
Arts Herndon is TEDxHerndon's Lead Community Partner. After 30 years of operation, the Council for the Arts of Herndon has joined together with the Foundation for the Cultural Arts of Herndon as one organization called Arts Herndon. The merger of the two organizations created a unique opportunity to increase the quality of arts programming in the greater Herndon area. While ArtSpace Herndon continues to invite emerging artists to show their artwork and perform their music, Arts Herndon supports our entire community of artists through scholarships, grants, professional development programming and public art. Our murals decorate and inspire the town of Herndon, while music wafts from our businesses and outdoor spaces.
The Future: As Herndon’s population increases, Arts Herndon also continues to grow and expand its scope with new kinds of programming, including the intimate concerts that befit our tiny gem of a location, as well as creative and surprising new exhibits, scholarships, children’s programs, arts classes and more. A creative burst of energy in the mid-1980’s inspired theatre, arts organizations and plans for Herndon’s civic life that now are coming to fruition. We have outgrown our venue, with over 13,000 visits per year, and are looking forward to the town’s new arts center, an 18,000 sq foot building comprising a theatre, gallery, performance space, classrooms and studios. The date for the new arts center will be in 2019 or 2020 according to current calculations. Arts Herndon’s gallery, ArtSpace Herndon, continues to operate as the interim Arts Center while work towards a permanent Arts Center in downtown Herndon continues.
