BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Since first formed as the Darien Arts Council in 1975, many devoted individuals have helped to guide and shape the Darien Arts Center into the vibrant organization it is today. We are dedicated to educating, promoting and providing the means of artistic expression in dance, music, visual arts and theatre for members of the community of all ages. Our Board of Directors and the individuals that make up various committees, volunteer their time to oversee the diverse activities of the Darien Arts Center and it's programs which include Dance, DAC Stage, Kids' Theatre, Music, and Visual Arts.
