Benton County Arts
promoting creative connection in Benton County, MO
Benton County Arts exists to encourage and promote the arts and artists in Benton County, Missouri, in partnership with county tourism, local businesses, and other foundations.
Benton County Arts began in Feb. 2019 as a Facebook group of local creatives sharing their work, networking, and encouraging one another in their endeavors as makers.
We represent every genre from fine art to fiber art, arts education, photography, performance arts, restoration and repurposing, and so much more.
Our goal is to create a non-profit organization that will promote the arts in our area through partnership with county tourism, education system, and local businesses.
We look forward to the community's support in making this goal a reality. The arts are important, and we have a treasure trove of talent to develop and share!
ARTs COUNCIL forming!
The goal of holding art-related events is to support Benton County artists with any proceeds going back into the organizing of a Benton County Arts Council to oversee any art-related events and continue to promote the arts culture of Benton County artists. If you are interested in being on this committee board, please contact Dina Kowal, Lynette Stokes or Amie Breshears.
