Missouri Arts Council

The Missouri Arts Council supports the arts that strengthen the cultural, educational, and economic vitality of our state.


COVID-19 Update: Missouri ArtSafe Certification - The Missouri Arts Council promotes COVID-19 safe practices by arts and cultural organizations statewide when the arts reopen under local guidelines. Together with the Missouri Arts Safety Alliance, a coalition of organizations throughout the state, we have created Missouri ArtSafe Certification. Organizations may become certified by pledging and adhering to a core level of safe practices. 

Missouri Arts Council, a state agency and division of the Department of Economic Development, provides grants to nonprofit organizations to encourage and stimulate the growth, development and appreciation of the arts in Missouri. Since 1965, MAC has provided vital support and leadership to bring the arts to all the people of the state.
