(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa is offering corporations, families and individuals the opportunity to become contributing members of the organization.

A contribution, whether corporate or family, directly translates to historic preservation and the revitalization of Downtown Tuscaloosa and the presentation of unique, educational programming for the students and citizens of Tuscaloosa County and West Alabama.
