Art can mean so much.

A recent effort to build Sedona as an arts and culture education hub will include artists of all kinds — performing arts, painters, culinary arts and more. 

Judy MaloneyStaff from Yavapai College, the Sedona-Oak Creek School District, the city of Sedona and elsewhere met for a planning meeting to discuss the idea Wednesday, Oct. 3. To date, 22 organizations are involved in the proposal, Sedona Mayor Rob Adams said. The arts visioning committee already held a number of meetings to flesh out the idea and plans to meet again in November.

“What we did was talk about how we can put the nuts and bolts of this together,” Adams said.

The group includes “facility holders” and a number of arts organizations. Currently the groups are working together on developing curriculum ideas, locations and determining levels of commitment from each organization.

Group moderator Judy Maloney said the meeting focused on how best to collaborate with the various educational institutions in the area.

“The vision is to establish the greater Sedona community as an internationally recognized learning center for arts and culture,” Maloney said. “The goal is to establish what it will mean to become internationally recognized. We’re going beyond just artists, all the way through film and performing arts to the healing arts as well, and including culinary arts and the hospitality industry.
