Love Summer!!!! 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. However in July, we will meet on the 31st at 4PM.
Our Fourth Annual Sponsorship Campaign has ended and was a great success! But, please consider making a tax free donation to the arts council at any time!
All arts council activities are made possible by the generous donations of our sponsors. 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. Sponsorship can be for specific projects such as the orchestra, art camp for kids, or other events. 100% of donations go to support Arts Council activities. The WSAC is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax exempt.
Our fund raising goal for 2016 was $6,500. And, we met the GOAL!!! We are very grateful to the sponsors who have made a commitment to continue support of the arts in our area. We are placing a Sponsorship Tree at the Ferguson Building to honor all donations over $100!!!!

We are very sad about the recent fire that damaged the Historic Star Theater! But, it is almost completely renovated!!! This theater is a landmark and had been the site of many Arts Council sponsored events, including both the Community and Youth Orchestras. The Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra helped open the theater on Saturday, May 20th.
