Arts Council of Greater Morgantown

Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to advance the arts and enhance the community by investing in imagination, infrastructure, and invention. 

Arts Mon was established as a nonprofit in 1999 as Arts Monongahela and became the City of Morgantown’s official Arts Council in 2014. 

The Arts Council is focused on greater Morgantown and its creative industries; we play a unique role in growing the creative sector, including performing arts, visual arts and crafts, culture and heritage, (media and film, design, and culinary arts).

Our mission is to advance the arts and enhance the community by investing in imagination, infrastructure, and invention. We work to foster a thriving creative community by providing resources and support for the arts in the Greater Morgantown area. Through programming and our network, we construct and support diverse avenues for commercial and nonprofit creative success. Through our advocacy, we work to ensure that our region’s creative industries are recognized not only for their cultural impact but also for their contribution to the region’s economic development.
