Linn-Benton Arts Council

     In l989, the Oregon Arts Commission chose the Corvallis Arts Center as the headquarters for the Linn-Benton Arts Council. The LBAC is one of ten regional arts councils in the state of Oregon and functions as a significant partner with the Oregon Arts Commission (OAC) in providing arts services, arts planning, and arts advocacy for our two-county region.
     The Oregon Arts Commission defines the core services of its ten regional partners as follows:

  • Broad dissemination of arts information
  • Support of the arts and arts organizations
  • Advocacy on behalf of the arts, serving as the 'arts voice' and functioning as the regional conveyor, promoter, and collaborator on behalf of the arts
  • Promotion of arts education among adults and children
  • Support of arts programming in public places
  • Also provide other services specific to the needs and resources of the communities in each region

The Linn-Benton Arts Council has met this mandate primarily through the publication of Artspirit, the publication of a regional Arts Directory, and its Arts-In-Education program. With this foundation firmly in place, the Linn-Benton Arts Council continues to create programs and services to meet the needs of the region.
