In 1967, the Arts Center of the Ozarks was created for people by people who cared about the arts being a part of everyday life. It continues to be Northwest Arkansas’ very personal home for the arts.
Over 125,000 people of all ages are touched by the ACO’s programs each year.
Approximately 20,000 students from elementary, middle, junior and senior highs from over 21 school districts attended daytime performance events and /or participated in performance or visual arts events during the past school year, including classes from NWACC. Some events are free of charge; those that are not, never cost more than $3 per student.
During its 45 years, the ACO has been the first to institute community theatre, dinner theatre, performance and visual arts classes for children and adults, children’s theatre productions, children choirs, adult community choir, & a ball and silent auction.
Over 300 artists were shown in the ACO Galleries during the 2010-2011 season in collective competitions and solo exhibitions.
