Mission Statement

As the non-profit support organizaton of the Cultural Arts Center (CAC), The Arsenal Group's mission is to be a support system for the city of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department's Cultural Art Center by: helping to identify and access funding resources; providing volunteer support for the enhancement of Center programming and its visibility; and by acting as a link for arts-related community input. We also share in the mission of the CAC: We believe art has the power to challenge, stimulate and enrich lives. Through our programs we endeavor to bring that power to our community. We strive to: 1. Educate and expose to the visual arts through popular culture; 2. Translate difficult concepts of art, art history and art theory into a populist language; 3. Present ideas and concepts in a non-threatening environment and format; 4. Provide an opportunity for art participants to have interactions with accomplished artists; 5. Provide experiential involvement with art-making, consuming and appreciation, and; 6. Serve as art ambassadors for the City of Columbus by communicating through our programs that the arts enhance the city's vitality and worth.


The Arsenal Group is a 5013c organization staffed by volunteers and dedicated to supporting the Cultural Arts Center goals and mission. We act as a resource for funding ideas and opportunities, provide volunteers needed to carry out our mission, and act as a link for community input through encouraging public interest and participation in CAC activities. The Board of Trustees of The Arsenal Group meets monthly to review activities, make decisions about budget, fundraising, marketing, volunteerism and CAC-related programming. We have many active volunteer committees working in each of these areas, including having the support of administration, staff and instructors. We plan and sometimes curate exhibits in our Main Hall Gallery, run the Gift Shop, coordinate Art Trips, hold raffles, sponsor sales of Center related items, create postcards and mailers, participate in and assist with programming, facility maintenance, receptions and openings, newsletters, administer the volunteer program, and participate in the Columbus Arts Festival as well as other summer festivals in downtown Columbus. There are many other activities in which the Arsenal Group leads and/or takes part, but all support the Cultural Arts Center.
