With a mission to develop and promote the visual, performing and literary arts in the Northwest Ohio community, we work tirelessly to provide broad access to the arts through initiatives involving business and education.

For over 48 years, we have provided quality arts programming and services to those in the metropolitan Toledo area. We are the longest standing arts commission in the state of Ohio.
