Ensuring Access to The Arts

Our Mission

The Arts Council stimulates and supports community creativity and engagement by advancing the arts, entertainment and culture to enrich quality of life, education, and economic development in the greater Huntsville metropolitan region.

Our vision is Huntsville as the premier mid-sized city for the arts, entertainment, and culture in the Southeastern United States.

Our Programs

The Arts Council directly impacts Huntsville/Madison County residents through four core programs:

• Arts Community Support & Promotions
• Arts Education
• Community Events
• Public Art

The Arts Council also serves as an “umbrella” organization for its members, providing them with resources and tools that ensure their survival and expansion. Members include over 200 arts organizations, individual artists, arts patrons, and other arts-minded non-profits and companies. The Arts Council’s services ensure ongoing community access to the arts and the continued success and growth of our local arts community.

There are many ways to engage with local arts, entertainment and culture and support our mission of improving our community through enabling access to high quality arts programming. Contact our office to learn how.

  • Arts Community Promotion and Support

    The Arts Council works to support and promote the work of a vibrant arts and cultural community. Our Arts Directory features profiles of The Arts Council’s members and you can keep up-to-date with activities and events using our Arts Calendar. Want to get involved with the arts community?

  • Arts Education

    Learning about (and through) the arts gives children and adults of all ages more than mere knowledge, it helps them understand themselves and the world around them in a way nothing else can. While substantial progress has been made incorporating the arts into our schools, there is still much to be done.

  • Community Events

    There’s always somethinghappening in the arts, entertainment and culture around Huntsville! For information about Panoply, Concerts in the Park and other events, visit our Community Events page.
