ETC is Cumberland's arts council, incorporated in 1990 as a nonprofit organization for the visual and performing arts. It is headquartered at the Cumberland Arts Center, a former Catholic church just north of downtown on Second Avenue, the community's main street. The building was given to ETC by the Ruppel family, and performances take place in the 120-seat Ruppel Family Theater. The all-volunteer organization derives its revenue from events, such as plays and concerts, from memberships and donations.
