History and Mission

After years of discussing the need and desire to create an organization that would support artistic endeavors in the Buena Vista area, in the fall of 2013 several civic-minded individuals gathered at a small café in downtown Buena Vista, and began an organization which has now become the Buena Vista Arts Council (BVAC). This 501(c)3 non-profit organization supports all art entities-- from non-profit to for profit, individual artists to groups of performers, educational and just-for-fun--serving the full spectrum of demographics in our community.

We hope to build on our successes with our vision:         

"BelieVe in BV!"

Our primary goals are to:

                                                              Build

                                                              Educate

                                                              Lead

                                                              Inspire

                                                              Encourage

                                                              Visualize

                                                              Enrich
