The arts are vital to the quality of life in Loudoun County. We nurture an environment where the arts may flourish. Made in Loudoun showcases the art of local visual artists on the Instagram social media handle @MadeinLoudounVA. We also fundraise for specific causes, like the “Peace in Our Time” initiative, described above
