The initial thrust of the Nantucket Arts Council was to create a year round theater that involved both professional and the community theater. Just as improvements were about to take place at the Straight Wharf Theater, fire struck and demolished the building and removed the initial reason for the Arts Council's existence.
In the late 70's and early 80's NAC, through the guidance of Reggie Levine, produced some very interring exhibitors at the NHA's Fair Street Museum and the Main Street Gallery.
In 1994 NAC began offering grants to non-profit organizations with cultural and artistic programs.
At the turn of the century The Nantucket Arts Council and the Nantucket Arts Alliance joined forces under the Nantucket Arts Council banner. "It's a positive change," said Kate Stout past president of the NAC "because it consolidates the volunteer power of like minded cultural visionaries."
