The West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History and the West Virginia Commission on the Arts are proud to work with artists, arts organizations, schools and community groups across the Mountain State to help provide a thriving environment for creative expression and appreciation for the arts.

Through grants and technical services funded by the West Virginia Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, we collaborate with artists, schools and nonprofit organizations to help provide cultural activities that improve the quality of life in West Virginia, help provide a complete education to our children and boost economic development in communities throughout the state.

Whether you’re interested in applying for a grant, bringing new cultural experiences to your community or needing advice for expanding currents services, the Arts staff is here to answer your questions and assist you in taking advantage of these services.
