Arts of Clark County
Arts of Clark County is a nonprofit organization advocating for the arts in Clark County and Southwest Washington. The arts are a vital foundation for an economically thriving community. We celebrate the vision and creativity of not just artists in all disciplines — but all people. Art is inclusive and connects all of us on a local, national, and global level. We believe art matters greatly to the human spirit. It is a need that when met enhances our quality of life. Our all-volunteer organization works toward building greater arts awareness, rewarding creative excellence, and expanding arts accessibility. With our second Arts and Culture Summit to be held on September 23, we are working to facilitate long-term arts development for Southwest Washington. We envision a stronger arts infrastructure that includes an art center and a performing arts facility. A stronger foundation for art creates the possibility for our community to become a vibrant arts hub. Your support will help to make this vision a reality. Arts of Clark County’s programs include our annual Clark County Open Studios tour and Poetry Moves, a collaborative effort that features the words of local poets on C-Tran buses. Both of these programs have already demonstrated the power of art in our lives to connect us, transform us, and fuel the economy.
Arts of Clark County is seeking funding to support such efforts as our upcoming Arts and Culture Summit, resulting follow-up events, and our continuing arts advocacy work. Financial support is also needed for our ongoing programs such as our annual Open Studios program and Poetry Moves, a program displaying the work of local poets in C-Tran buses.
