Lehigh Valley Arts Council
The mission of the Lehigh Valley Arts Council is to promote the value of the arts, foster collaboration in the community, and encourage arts engagement for all people in the Lehigh Valley.
We exist to unite the community around a shared value that the arts are essential to our economic vitality and quality of life. Our vision is to ensure that everyone has access to a rich, diverse arts culture.
Our Arts Calendar is your resource for arts and cultural events. This bi-monthly publication is distributed throughout the Lehigh Valley, by direct mail to our members and hand-delivery to various organizations and businesses. To see the latest edition of the Arts Calendar please click here.
