The Lehigh Valley Arts Council is the region’s central voice for the arts. It’s our calling to promote arts awareness and advocate its value. It’s our vision to ensure that everyone has access to a rich, diverse arts culture.  We accomplish this by bringing people together to find solutions that advance greater arts participation. Join our efforts through our many ongoing events and services!
