The Sierra Nevada Arts Alliance is a collaborative alliance of the county arts councils in the twenty-two counties of the Sierra Nevada region. By teaming with tourism and cultural organizations, historical societies, museums and agricultural interests, the members of the Alliance take an active role to attract visitors and to sustain the lively arts communities of the Sierra Nevada.

The natural beauty of spring wildflowers, fall foliage, snow-capped peaks, thundering falls and that unique quality of light that led Ansel Adams to call Sierra Nevada the “range of light”, has inspired generations to interpret it through drawing, painting, song, dance, poetry, sculpture and other forms of art.

We invite you enjoy the rich mix of arts, heritage and agricultural traditions of the communties of the Sierra Nevada. We are sure that you will find them equally as compelling as the back roads, hiking and biking and ski trails that provide access to the heart of the wilderness.
