Our Values,
We believe that Art is intrinsic to the very idea of being human.  Art is the bedrock expression of our intelligence and fundamental to human development.   Art is the oxygen that fires the imagination and breathes life into civil discourse.
We understand that frequent exposure to the breadth and depth of the Arts is essential to our children’s intellectual and social maturation.
Expression and appreciation, as encouraged by the Arts, afford self-discovery, build self-confidence, and promote tolerance.  These qualities not only build better individuals, they build better communities.
The Illinois River Valley Arts Council contends that Life is Art as Art is Life.
