    Mission Statement: The Mid-Valley Arts Council's mission is to promote, support, coordinate, and facilitate expression of the arts in all their forms in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties.

    We are one of Oregon's ten private, non-profit Regional Arts Councils. We are supported by a mixture of earned income, local and state government grants, and the generosity of many individuals and volunteers. The Mid-Valley Arts Council offers:
