Founded in 1990, the North Central Arkansas Foundation for Art & Education is composed of a group of dedicated individuals committed to enhancing the cultural environment of Van Buren, Stone, and Cleburne Counties.

Through grants, public programs, and generous sponsors, we have become the region’s premier organizer of fine arts events.

We provide venues for live music performances by nationally-renowned artists and budding local talent, as well as rotating art exhibits that showcase a range of styles and genres. Our outreach extends to the area’s schools with programs such as the “Artmobile” and public exhibits of student artworks in the community. Our widely-acclaimed holiday events have brought special guest artists & performing groups from all over the world.

Our belief in the power of the arts to enrich lives & expand the horizons of our youth is the driving force behind our goal to reach every student with the chance to experience the wonder of discovery and creative expression. These pursuits – whether musical, visual, or literary – encourage us to transcend our limitations and motivate us to excellence. They hold a precious influence that all ages have a right to enjoy.
