Butts County has a thriving arts council that promotes artists and their works throughout the community. In order to make unique artwork available to the public, over 50 pieces of original artwork that form part of the permanent collection of the Jackson-Butts County Council For The Arts is housed within the Butts County Administration Building, the Historic Butts County Courthouse and on public display during business hours. Each piece displays information about the artwork, the artist and related information.
Aspiring artists and those interested in art are strongly encouraged and invited to come and view the collection throughout the public areas of the building. These include paintings, sculpture pieces and and photography that has been purchased by the Arts Council over the years by local, state and regional artists and are rotated for other pieces through the year.
These unique pieces are the works of both local and regional Georgia artists, including Scott Coleman, Liz Carmichael Jones and others. When you are in the area, stop by the Administration Building during business hours and enjoy the artworks in the public spaces of the building or at the Historic Courthouse on the square. While there, check our our Jackson-Butts County Visitors Center, operated by the Butts County Chamber of Commerce and learn about other interesting places to visit while you are in town!
