Through state appropriations and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council funds arts events and arts education programs throughout the state. Projects funded by the Oklahoma Arts Council generate matching funds and create public/private partnerships that in turn impact Oklahoma’s economy throughout the state’s rural and urban communities.
