PLACERVILLE — After five years on Main Street, the El Dorado Arts Council will move to the historic Fausel House on 772 Pacific St. this September.
The El Dorado Arts Council is a non-profit organization that enriches and educates the community in all of the arts, supporting the cultural and economic development of El Dorado County.
the move could not have come at a better time, according to El Dorado Arts Council Executive Director Deb Jensen.
“The Fausel House holds a wonderful history right in the heart of Placerville just a few steps away from Main Street. In addition to the ample off street parking, the landlord shares and supports the EDAC mission that will allow us to be a multi-functional organization,” she said. “This is the perfect place for the El Dorado Arts Council’s new home and we couldn’t be happier.”
The move would not be possible without the support of the Fausel Professional Center ownership group and Charlie Downs. Sherry Joyce has generously donated her professional interior design talents to create a space that will accommodate art in all forms.
All summer events and activities will continue to be held at 459 Main St. The grand opening gala at the Fausel House will be held Nov 1, 2014. More exciting details and information to follow.
