The Mission of the Lebanon Valley Council on the Arts is to promote all
disciplines of the arts and encourage greater appreciation of the arts, thereby enhancing the quality of life in the region.
The Vision of the Lebanon Valley Council on the Arts is to provide
organization, leadership, and a voice for the arts to transform people and
communities. We believe where there is art, there is life, and we envision the arts for everyone.
We serve as an advocate for artists working in all the disciplines and a clearinghouse for information on all aspects of the arts. We host an exhibition series based in our Galleries at 770 Cumberland Street. We promote theater, music and dance performances and are the coordinating organization behind Lebanon’s First Friday Art Walk.
Our services to the community include classes for children and adults. We offer inexpensive studio rentals aimed at artists. Our website is a gateway to the sites of member artists and organizations. Our space is also available for meetings, celebrations, and community events.
Our concept of the arts includes all the performing arts, including dance music and theater, as well as the visual arts, literary arts and language arts. We believe that the presence of the arts here in the Lebanon Area enriches our individual lives and enhances the quality of life for our entire community.
Membership is open to the general public and to artists, artisans, craftspeople, businesses, government officials and organizations interested in promoting the arts and culture in Lebanon.
