Columbus Area Arts Council fosters a creative community by supporting the growth of the arts in the Columbus area.
Our Mission The mission of the Columbus Area Arts Council is to provide visionary leadership in the arts. We foster, support, and promote growth in the arts that educate and enrich the cultural environment of Bartholomew County.
The arts are the foundation of a creative community that includes every person at every facet of society. Columbus has a rich history with the arts. They help to engage, educate, and strengthen our community. They uniquely set us apart from other rural communities our size, shaping our physical and social character. As funding for the arts is cut, so too is the Arts Council's potential to build on this historical foundation. By supporting the arts, you are supporting a vibrant future for generations to come.
