FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - A non-profit organization in Fitzgerald is making sure the city is a fun and exciting place to live.
The Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County Arts Council offers dozens of programs in the community.
Each month, it sponsors a free, rotating exhibit featuring regional, local and statewide talent. The current exhibit is Wild Chicken Soup.
People can also come in and create their own work at the Creation Station which offers a wide range of free art materials.
Executive Director Brandy Elrod says the goal is to encourage and spur creativity.
"It provides opportunities for our citizens, and visitors, to come together and interact." Elrod said.
"The arts are the heartbeat, really of any community. And it makes the community unique."
The arts council also holds a summer arts program in June. Students are involved in a week of activities including writing their own play.
The program runs June 5-9. Registration is currently open.
