The Fine Arts League of Cary’s story begins when twelve members of the Cart Art Guild in 1993 hosted an exploratory meeting to measure possible interest in a larger, more robust organization for artists. More than 120 residents attended, including many who wanted a group for music and theater. However, this meeting was the impetus for the visual arts organization initially called the Cary Cultural Arts Association. By 1999, CCAA had attained nonprofit status and changed its name to the Fine Arts League of Cary. More than two decades later, FALC is still viewed as a visual arts mainstay in Cary and beyond.
