The Arts Coalition nourishes the creative spirit in our community with financial support for artists as well as arts and cultural organizations. By raising funds through events, memberships, and corporate and individual gifts, the Arts Coalition is able to secure matching funds from the Wisconsin Arts Board. These combined funds are awarded to area arts and cultural programs.

Established in 2003, the Arts Coalition embraces the performing arts, literary arts, visual arts and crafts as well as local and regional history and culture in River Valley communities of Spring Green, Plain, Lone Rock and Arena.

In addition to raising funds and operating as a re-granting organization, the Arts Coalition:

  • Creates community programs that showcase art forms, local artists, River Valley High School student artists and unique cultural aspects of our community.
  • Provides a scholarship for a River Valley High School student to pursue education in the arts.
  • Raises awareness of the value of the arts in all aspects of  community life.
  • Sponsors workshops for artists on subjects such as grant writing, marketing and financial management.
