“Creativity takes courage”- Henri Matisse
WHO WE ARE
Dedicated to Enhancing the Lives of Others
The Ada Arts Council coordinates and encourages cultural endeavors, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of the fine arts and humanities. The Ada Arts Council has been part of the community since 1976 when it was created to provide cultural opportunities for all ages.
Recognizing the importance of the arts and humanities to our community, the council takes every opportunity to present a wide variety of programs in the performing and visual arts, as well as discussions in the humanities to its members and the community at-large. We are an incorporated, non-profit organization, so we depend upon our members to provide support for the various events offered throughout the year. Our membership year is April 1 to March 31.
We would like to continue offering major events to the community, such as Artrain USA, Tulsa Philharmonic Orchestra, Oklahoma Festival Ballet, and the Vienna Choir Boys. To that end, we have created a Special Endowment Fund which we hope to build and use to regularly bring, larger events to town.
Your support has allowed us to offer a variety of special events, from lectures to concerts, including Taste of Ada, Cozy Up with the Arts, Annual Art show also special events with performances by local artisans and musicians. We also continue to offer the always popular Summer Arts Program and provide scholarship support to a variety of students in the arts and humanities.
Each year the Ada Arts Council searches for candidates for the Wight and Criswell Scholarships as well as an Outstanding Adan for the Arts. The winners of these three awards are announced each spring.
