To promote community participation and interest in the fine arts.
To serve all art groups in all forms.
Welcome to our webpage!!! Please check back frequently to see what events we are sponsoring. Be sure to scroll below the Calendar on the calendar page for more information on our events!
We would like to encourage anyone interested in the arts to come join us at our monthly meetings. We meet every fourth Monday of the month at the Ferguson Building in Willow Springs at 5:00PM.
Our Fourth Annual Sponsorship Campaign will start in October. This is the Arts Council’s annual fund raising event to raise funds for our varied activities supporting the fine arts in our community. 100% of donations go to support art activities like the Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra, the Youth Orchestra, art camp for kids, art workshops, and art exhibits. We encourage individuals, businesses and other organizations to make a donation to the arts council to help ensure events like these continue in our area. The WSAC is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax exempt.
You can also donate with purchases from Amazon. Use this link:
