We endeavor to ensure access to the arts for all ages, ignite a passion for the arts, and successfully advocate, partner, and collaborate with individuals from all over the state dedicated to the arts to cultivate new economic and community growth.

  • We believe in the fundamental value of the arts. The arts foster civic engagement, promote economic growth and enhance social empathy which holds a vital role in nurturing and sustaining flourishing communities.
