About Fairbanks Arts Association

Our mission is promoting excellence in contemporary and traditional arts in Alaska’s Interior. Fairbanks Arts is the oldest community arts council in the state and the official arts organization for both the Fairbanks North Star Borough and the City of Fairbanks, providing service, information, and support to local artists, organizations, and audiences. Fairbanks Arts provides programming in performing arts, literary arts, visual arts, and arts education with the assistance of advisory committees comprised of community volunteers.

  • In following the CDC’s current mask guidelines, wearing a mask is highly encouraged but not required for vaccinated individuals.
  • Social distancing of no less than 6ft apart must be observed within the Bear Gallery.
  • The current limit of visitors in the gallery at one time is 15 individuals.
  • Our COVID-19 mitigation plan involves the frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces to ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff.
