Formed in 1992, shortly after the City of American Canyon incorporated, the American Canyon Arts Foundation (ACAF) is one of the oldest community groups in American Canyon.  

We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, and we produce or sponsor art-related events and activities, as well as participate in community events and programs.  Our current programs are based on two main strategies:

  • Focus on Visual, Performing and Cultural Arts; and
  • Provide financial, professional and social value for our members.

ACAF is run by a Board of Directors, including both artists and community leaders.  We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, and we produce or sponsor art-related events and activities, as well as participate in community events and programs.
