Georgia Council for the Arts invites all state motor vehicle owners to support the arts by reserving an arts specialty license plate. The license plate features the image of General James Oglethorpe, who settled Georgia, standing in front of the state flag. The image was designed and created by renowned Georgia artist Steve Penley. 


Ten dollars from the sale of each plate will go to GCA which will use the funds to support arts programs in communities statewide. More arts programs means more jobs, more tourists, and more opportunities for growth and development statewide.  National studies have shown that the creative industries re-circulates the income of residents at a higher rate, creates jobs for local businesses, trains the next generation of the creative workforce and attracts and retains non-arts related businesses.*
