Arts Wisconsin works to ensure that everyone, everywhere in Wisconsin should have the opportunity to experience the arts. We know that the arts help build and sustain economic vitality, education for the 21st century, healthy, vibrant communities, and engaged residents, throughout Wisconsin. We serve and speak up for the wide-ranging, diverse and creative constituency of people, organizations and communities making the arts come alive in every corner of the state. Go to www.artswisconsin.org to learn more and get involved. Nominations for the 2018 “Arts in the Community” Awards are now open! Nominate a local elected official or civic advocate for the award, to be presented at the League of Wisconsin Municipalities conference on October 25, 2018. Nomination deadline: Friday, August 31.
