Sullivan County Council on the Arts - Supporting the arts, culture and heritage of Sullivan County, Pennsylvania

If you have an idea for a program we could promote, a class we could teach or an event we could sponsor, let us know.

The SCCA is an entirely volunteer organization that cannot exist without input from people like YOU.

OK, there are a couple of weirdos living under the Forksville covered bridge who have a direct connection to some very intelligent aliens, but we don't talk about them in civilized society.

Working to find a home

In cooperation with the Sullivan County Commissioners and the Sullivan County Recreational Association, we have been working to put together a Community Center that would include - in addition to a wide variety of social services - an office, an art gallery and a small community theater for the SCCA. We'll try to keep you up to date on developments, which are still very much in the planning stage.

About the Sullivan County Council on the Arts

The Sullivan County Council on the Arts was founded in 1988, with Vivian McCarty as president.

Florence Suarez became volunteer executive director in 1992.

All board members, officers and workers are volunteers – we have no paid staff.

Over the years, the SCCA has developed a wide range of programs with special strengths in the visual arts and student artist awards. A major  concentration has been on the Roving Historical Theater, devoted to bringing the history of Sullivan County communities alive through local stage productions.

We also offer musical events.

We are still looking for a space in which to reestablish an art gallery.

Please browse our pages to learn more about who we are and what we do.

ppa logo The SCCA is supported in part by Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA), the regional arts funding partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency. State government funding comes through annual appropriation by Pennsylvania's General Assembly and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by the Bradford County Regional Arts Council.


Some programs are funded in part by the Sullivan County Room Tax Fund and the Endless Mountains Visitor's Bureau.

The photos arrayed around this page show the winners of the annual Choice of Show competition at the Sullivan County High School. With this award, the SCCA purchases the winning piece, frames it and places it on permanent display, complete with plaque in the main corridor of the high school.
