A BRIEF HISTORY
Way back in 1976, Pinedale school teacher Arlinda McLaughlin approached Spike Jorgensen about bringing in performing artists for the schools. In May of that year the Utah Symphony, conducted by Maestro Maurice Abravanel, performed a one-hour concert in the high school for the students and community members. From this first performance, programs and residencies were scheduled into the schools, first in Pinedale and later Big Piney and, thus, The Pinedale Fine Arts Council was born. In 1983, PFAC received The Governor’s Arts Award for the Outstanding Arts Organization in the state. Co-Founder Jo Crandall would later receive the same award in 2003. In our 2005-2006 season, PFAC presented our first Broadway touring company performing "Gentleman Prefer Blondes." In 2014 PFAC launched its first summer camp and in 2018 the organization launched a new set of dementia care art classes. Currently, PFAC offers a six-event season tickets series, an ongoing slate of school and community residecies and a six event summer parks series called Soundcheck.

PARTNERS
PFAC currently serves as the umbrella for Pinedale Public Art, Pinedale Community Theatre and the Pinedale Community Choir.
