About Us

The arts enrich and enhance our lives. In fact, the arts are vital!

Most people are unaware of how much the arts impact our everyday lives, but in fact, everyone benefits from the arts. Arts experiences offer new ways to look at problem solving, human relationships, and career options. The Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County has worked since 1998, to create, coordinate, and/or promote opportunities for people in our community to expand their experiences and awareness of the visual, performing, and literary arts.

Knowing that an active arts populace is essential to the long-term economic vitality of our community, we apply our efforts to making the arts more accessible to everyone of every age, from young children through to active seniors. The Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County is dedicated to actively supporting arts activities and to facilitating positive interaction among individual local artists, their organizations, and local businesses and institutions, in order to boost our local economy. Our work to promote awareness of community arts events, as well as the events we produce, are free to both exhibitors and attendees.

We help to expand arts opportunities for young people by sponsoring and managing the McKune Visual Arts Scholarship, the Powell Performing Arts Scholarship and the Lockhart Art is Vital FundOur monthly arts newsletter, ARTScene, provides a full calendar of local arts activities, from children’s art exhibits to professional theater. All our activities and events are driven by our mission and objectives, which you can learn more about on these pages.
