2016 – 2017 Annual Fund Drive

The mission of the Emporia Arts Center is:

“To Educate, To Advocate and to Celebrate” the arts in Emporia and our surrounding counties (Chase, Morris, Coffey, Greenwood, Osage, and Wabaunsee).

EAC focuses on three major initiatives:

The Art Education Project, The Community Initiative, and The Performing Art Series.

The Art Education Project (AEP) – Your commitment to EAC builds a legacy for area children rich in creativity and originality. EAC partners with our area schools for after school arts, the area recreation commission for arts at summer camp programs, activities at Brown Bag concerts, Hispanics of Today and Tomorrow’s community events, USD 253’s all school STREAM grant, and master classes at Emporia State University. EAC’s outreach activities occur 12 months of the year.

The Community Initiative (TCI) – The Community Initiative improves our everyday life. The Arts Center is a resource for individuals and businesses in Emporia, with a variety of quality rental spaces available. Our state of the art facility is a stop that highlights tours of our community – family, friends, and tourists! The Community Initiative represents EAC’s work to promote and advance artists, our arts community and the “business of art.” Whether it’s sold in our year-round ‘Don and Mary Glaser Art & Gift Shop’ or featured in the ‘Trusler Gallery,’ EAC art sales benefit artists and the arts community.

Performing Arts Series (PAS) – Every year EAC hosts performing artists. This year we will host Vocal Trash, Julie Fowlis, Shanghai Acrobats, Morgenstern Trio, The Russian National Ballet Theatre, and Missoula Children’s Theatre.

Each day we open our doors, our community and the lives within it are changed!

We invite you to become an Annual Fund Donor.
