About Us

Arkansas abounds with culture and creativity. The arts strengthen the economy, drive tourism and business and improve academic performance. The Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Division of Arkansas Heritage, advances and empowers the arts by providing services and funding for programming that encourages and assists literary, performing and visual artists and arts organizations in achieving standards of professional excellence. The Arkansas Arts Council provides technical and financial assistance to Arkansas arts organizations and other providers of cultural and educational programs. This statewide programming and assistance ultimately provide cultural, educational and economic opportunities for the benefit of all Arkansans. Funding is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Arkansas.
