Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) Executive Director, Emily Lightner, staff, board members, friends, and Chamber representatives celebrated their new organization logo by holding a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting on September 5th. They are located at 8652 Campbellton Street in Douglasville.
Since 1986, the CAC has offered high quality cultural events and arts activities in our community. Their mission is to nurture, guide and stimulate the enjoyment of and participation in the arts among residents of and visitors to Douglas County. With over 30 years of service, the Arts Council presents a sophisticated and diverse mix of programs including monthly exhibits, free outdoor concerts on O’Neal Plaza, arts education in schools, hands-on workshops, classes for children and adults, gallery talks, a literary festival, book signings, and the annual Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
In June, the CAC hosted a Logo Design Contest allowing artists to submit a logo design. At the CAC’s Annual Meeting, held on June 14th, over 25 logos were displayed. The Arts Council members and the community were able to vote for their favorite logo. The top two logos were then presented to the Cultural Arts Council’s board of directors for voting. The CAC Logo Design Contest winner is Whitney Constien.
Contest winner Whitney Constien serves as the Communications Coordinator at the Douglas County Chamber. She is a native of Douglas County where she graduated from Chapel Hill High School. She attended Kennesaw State University and received her Bachelors of Science degree in Human Services with a concentration in Nonprofit Administration. Throughout college, Whitney continued to develop her graphic design skills through various projects for classes and internships. Her passion and skills for graphic design have continued to flourish as she serves the community in many different capacities through her role at the Chamber.
Mayor Rochelle Robinson commented, “On behalf of the City of Douglasville, we recognize how important arts are in our community and we look forward to supporting the many great programs and initiatives provided by the Cultural Arts Council.”
Chamber President and CEO, Sara Ray, congratulated Lightner, “While we know the magnolia served the CAC well over the years, we are elated to celebrate your new logo. We look forward to continuing to support and promote the CAC for years to come as you provide various programs for the arts community in Douglas County.“
