It is inherant in the Council's vision that the public value of the arts is understood and acted upon by community members, leaders, and those who make policy.  The council's advocacy is guided by the following principles.

- We support arts education.

- We support funding for the arts.

- We support maintaining strong arts institutions of all sizes and the emergence of new arts institutions.

- We support artistic freedoms.

- We support the preservation of our historic art and the creation of art for the future.

Recent Advocacy

Hollywood Arts Council members joined the team at Arts for LA and many additional art advocates at Los Angeles City Hall for Arts Day 2017. Delegates were chosen to meet with City Council members and their staff to reaffirm civic commitment to the arts across the city.

This historic mural of Dolores del Rio, the first female Latin cross-over star in Hollywood, was recently restored by the original artist, Alfredo de Batuc. The Hollywood Arts Council teamed up with SPARC ART, the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los AngelesHollywood Property Owners Alliance and Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell for this restoration. Check out the mural in person at Hollywood Blvd and Hudson Ave!

Fiscal receivership or sponsorship is a financial and legal system by which a legally recognized 501(c)(3) public charity (such as the Hollywood Arts Council) provides limited financial and administrative oversight for a project initiated independently by an artist or an arts organization. That “project” might be a one-time project or an independent artist or an arts organization that does not have its own 501(c)(3) status, or is in the process of obtaining its own 501 (c )(3) determination. Once sponsored in this way, the project is eligible to solicit and receive grants and tax-deductible contributions that are normally available only to 501(c)(3) organizations.

The Hollywood Arts Council supports artists and arts organizations in Hollywood. Organizations in the process of obtaining a 501 (c )(3) determination, and individual projects and programs that prefer to remain fiscally sponsored can make use of the Council’s nonprofit infrastructure to support their efforts.

The Council considers fiscal sponsorships on a case-by-case basis. For more information on the process, please contact Linda Horner at 323-462-2355 or email
