Metro Arts
Metro Arts Council is a non-profit, coordinating body representing the arts and culture, organized to encourage and strengthen the cultural life of Southern Nevada, and to further the development and appreciation of the arts. It serves as an information outlet; an advocacy voice representing the arts and culture; an umbrella for arts groups or projects needing fiscal sponsorship; a convener for professional arts networking and training; and a research agency to identify needs and follow trends in the arts and culture.

What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit.
