The Arts Board strives to ensure that all Minnesotans have the opportunity to participate in and benefit from the arts. Its mission is to stimulate and encourage the creation, performance, and appreciation of the arts in the state.
The Minnesota State Arts Board is made up of eleven private citizens who are appointed by the governor. More than 300 individuals are appointed each year to review grant applications and help determine which applications will be recommended for funding.
The Arts Board provides financial support and services to encourage the creation, performance, and appreciation of arts in the state. Arts Board programs are intended to reach out to all Minnesotans, regardless of geographic location, economic situation, age, racial/ethnic characteristics, or disability. Funding for Arts Board programs and services is appropriated by the State of Minnesota, with supplemental support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
In addition, Minnesota’s eleven regional arts councils provide grants for arts activities in their regions. The Arts Board acts as fiscal sponsor to the councils, but each council has local decision-making authority over the state funds it receives.
Through its grant programs and other activities, the Arts Board works to achieve the following strategic outcomes:
* The arts are essential to a vibrant society * The arts are essential to a vibrant society * The arts are interwoven into every facet of community life * Minnesotans believe the arts are vital to who we are * People of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities participate in the arts * People trust Minnesota’s stewardship of public arts funding * The arts thrive in Minnesota
