Our Mission:

Enriching Lives and Building Community Through the Arts


Platte City Friends of the Arts hosts and/or sponsors:

 


Founding members Sharon Short, Debbie Dance Uhrig, and Lisa Stephens started Platte City Friends of the Arts in 1999 with a concert at Snow Creek by a California artist. Terry Durand joined the board and the group was off and running. A second Snow Creek concert included a served dinner. The friends then produced an art show in the showroom at All Pro Ford and began a community orchestra. Sharon, Debbie, Lisa and Terry are so proud of the continuing interest that the community and the present board members and all past board members have shown to the arts in Platte City.

  • served the Platte County community since 1999

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
