Today at Shumway – September 2020

The Rockford Area Arts Council’s mission is simple–to support, promote, and develop access to the arts for everyone. We are the collective voice for individual artists and regional arts organizations—and you!

In keeping with announcements at the top–I thought we’d try a ‘Breaking News’ caption to excite our readers to investigate all our good press–Enjoy!

Great NYT’s article on Theatres…reimagined

Thank you for your support during these difficult months. We are keeping our noses to the grindstone, and our antenna up, for critical partnerships, effective collaborations, and key funding opportunities for our artist community.

The Arts Council believes in the transformative power of the arts and its ability to set the tone for a city’s creative and cultural infrastructure. Join us every month, for a regional update on all things music, art, performance, and culture! Email Beth, at, to attend our monthly meetings.
