Funded for
Arts & Culture

The Peyton Anderson Foundation recognizes the regional impact of Arts & Culture as it creates a strong sense of place, enhances community vibrancy and generates cultural tourism. The Foundation supports Macon-Bibb’s diverse, regional arts community by fostering artistic and historic development. This diverse arts community incorporates creative expression, historic preservation, theatre, local tradition, museums and music to ensure an active community and stronger economic development. Among the landmark arts & cultural investments of the Foundation is its unwavering support of Downtown Macon, its Museum District and surrounding cultural attractions, including the construction of the Tubman Museum.  The continued restoration of the Hay House and historic recording studio at Mercer Music at Capricorn Studio, as well as, the Peyton Anderson Orchard located at the Museum of Arts and Sciences are some of the Foundation’s most recent projects.
