Welcome!

The West Virginia Commission on the Arts, established in 1967, works with artists, arts organizations, schools, and community groups to foster a fertile environment for the artistic, cultural, educational and economic development of the state.

The West Virginia Division of Culture and History receives annual support from the West Virginia Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, and a special grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, for competitive arts grants approved by the West Virginia Commission on the Arts and for arts administration services to arts organizations and individual artists across West Virginia.
