Final thoughts from the Sioux Falls Arts Council

Over the last month we have had the privilege of sharing on the Blueprint South Dakota platform a variety of contributors from the local arts community. We hope to have sparked or fanned the flame for architects to incorporate the arts into their daily practice. We implore you to reach out next time you…

…want to bring art into your office or hire a musician for a private office event. Our website is a great resource to discover new artists through our free online Artist Directory.

…found an opportunity to integrate art works into a project you are working on. We can help with Calls for Art and Request for Proposals to get you connected with a larger pool of artists both locally and regionally.

…are looking to support the local arts scene! Besides the resources we have created through our website to connect artists and arts organizations with their audience, we fiscally sponsor four smaller arts nonprofits. All dollars donated to the SFAC move all the arts forward in our community.

The Sioux Falls Arts Council is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization located in Downtown Sioux Falls. Our mission is to enrich Sioux Falls culture, economy, and opportunities by building a stronger and more vibrant arts community through our programs and services.
