As a multi-disciplinary arts organization, we tap into the potential of our creative residents to enrich
Mission & Vision
To celebrate our region’s literary, musical, and visual artists and share their contributions with the community.

Heights Arts was founded on the premise that capitalizing on our community’s rich artistic resources could positively impact all aspects of community life: community-building, economic development, education, and public spaces. Residents and city officials quickly embraced Heights Arts as we began to tap into the creative spirit of our community. Although originally founded to support local artists, we have become a regional presence for the arts with one-third of our supporting members residing outside of our city.
