About Us

The arts are vital! The Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County encourages, promotes, and supports the appreciation of and participation in the arts by everyone in our community.

Thus, we are dedicated to actively supporting arts activities and facilitating positive interaction among individual local artists, their organizations, and local businesses and institutions. We work to promote awareness of all community arts events, not just our own.

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. Founded in 1998, the Arts Commission creates, coordinates, and promotes opportunities for people in our community to enjoy the visual, performing, and literary arts. Knowing that an active arts populace is essential to the long-term economic vitality of our community, we work to make the arts more accessible to everyone, from young children through to active seniors.

We sponsor and manage 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.
