The mission of ACOR is "Education for the Arts." The main focus is to inspire and encourage the African-American artist with the visual arts: poetry, writing, theater, entertainment, and music to pursue this type of profession or talent. We aid them so that they can become more professional in their field. Each month, we feature a different African-American artist. We show the art, promote it, and sell it.    Look for ACOR's exhibit at this year's Art on the Avenue!
