The Arizona Commission on the Arts connects
artists and communities through many diverse arts programs and services. The agency delivers grants to support and
promote statewide public access to arts and cultural activities. Some of the programs and organizations which
receive funding from the Arizona Commission on the Arts include museums, local craft showcases, visual artists, professional dancers, musicians and performers. Each year the Commission provides funding and
professional support to more than fifty arts festivals across
the state. The Commission’s grants fund arts education and hands-on arts learning
programs to schools in urban, suburban and rural areas throughout Arizona.
