The Sioux Falls Arts Council serves as the gateway to arts and culture for residents and visitors in southeast South Dakota, serving the entire community through promotion and coordination of the arts. It is driven by the belief that a vibrant and collaborative arts scene is integral for high quality of life and workforce development in Sioux Falls. Founded in 1969, it underwent a shift in 2017, formally embracing our community’s need for an agency that coordinates and represents our arts and culture sector rather an organization that creates additional programming in an already vibrant arts scene.
