The Arts Council provides opportunities for everyone at a wide variety of events and programs. There is truly something for everyone, and nearly all of our events provide revenue to fund our other programs and services including grants to organizations and placing artists in schools.
To keep musicians and audiences safe, we’re suspending the program for the remainder of 2020.
Our annual New Year’s Eve celebration of the arts might be virtual this year, keeping artists and audiences safe.
On My Own Time, a visual arts exhibit and competition, is open to employees of local businesses, educational and medical institutions, and governmental agencies. The intent of On My Own Time is to encourage and display artwork of talented employees whose work is created “on my own time,” not at the workplace. This biennial program will be held again in 2021.
These awards, given to recognize artists, arts educators, businesses, volunteers, and arts organizations in Sangamon and Menard counties, will be given in 2022.
