Clark County Arts Commission
We encourage you to enrich your life by attending the many art exhibits, theater and dance performances, book readings, music events and other cultural offerings available here in Clark County. Whether you are a film buff, a concert-goer, a museum enthusiast, or poetry fan your life will be richer. Take up an instrument or paintbrush, sing or dance, or write that blog or great American novel. We have a wealth of private teachers and mentors to share knowledge with adults and youth.
The Clark County Arts Commission knows the arts are good for us and can be an inter-generational bridge encouraging mentors and apprentices to work side by side with shared passion. Children who direct their imagination into creative outlets are happier and grow up to be more engaged as adults. Case studies with therapies reveal that art and music eliminate anxieties and soothe our emotions.
The arts hold the power to inspire and enlighten. They influence the economy by creating jobs and ancillary services, stimulating tourism and raising tax revenues. The interdependence of artists supporting local businesses that have supported them is a win-win situation.
The arts cannot exist in a vacuum. Artists need advocates. Your support is critical for creative professionals to continue their practices. With your help Clark County can evolve into an arts and culture destination that will delight both citizens and visitors. Join us at our monthly meetings. We value your input and can help you learn about events in your neighborhood. Let us know if you perform or exhibit in the county so we can support you; if you would like to volunteer contact one of the commissioners.
