    Letter from the Executive Director

    Every day at the Columbus Arts Council we are reminded of the opportunities to reach out to Columbus and the surrounding areas bringing Art and Performing Arts to our communities. With partners like you we are able to do just that. Every year we depend upon the faithful partners from our Members and event supporters to help make it all possible.

    By partnering with us you become an important link in the Arts making it possible to build a brighter future for our community, schools and performing arts programs.

    There is no greater joy than seeing students faces light up when they get our Art2Go back pack filled with art supplies that they get to take home and use. Can you imagine what it would be like to not have such an opportunity to be introduced to the Arts? From Youth Art Month to special Art Gallery shows we bring the artist to the community.

    Thank you for partnering with us and we value your gifts! Stop by the Art Gallery in the lower level of the Columbus Public Library to check us out.

    Sincerely,

    Rod Magg

    Executive Director
