The arts have suffered tremendously since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our arts organizations and individual artists have had to modify, postpone or cancel most, if not all of their projects and events, since March of this year. These closures mean lost income and lost opportunities. Although we will certainly see a reduction of funding from our state funding which comes from sales tax revenues, the SW MN Arts Council will continue working to support and fund arts access for the citizens of your county. We need you to help us support the arts.

Our mission is to promote the arts in the 18 county region of southwest Minnesota.  We are asking you to please contribute to the Southwest Minnesota Arts and help us continue to make a difference in the arts in our region. Contributions are tax deductible. Please donate online or send your check today to Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, PO Box 55, Marshall, MN 56258.
