About Us



A community that embraces the arts, culture, and the humanities.


To nurture and support the arts and humanities in our community.
501 (c) (3) Organization


Because we value the benefits of art, culture, and the humanities in the overall quality of life, and in collaboration with our statewide arts organizations, the HCAC Board of Directors:

  • Believe that the arts and humanities are more than creative outlets for individuals; they express the lifeblood of our human experience, provide context for our collective experience, and form the foundation of history’s permanent record.

  • Educate the public about the benefits of the Creative Economy, and how arts-related programming contributes to not only the quality of life, but also the foundational economic base.

  • Support the inclusion of aesthetic elements in streetscapes, the city center, pedestrian thoroughfares, and other physical community aspects, so as to contribute to quality of life in the community.

  • Encourage artists through supporting their ability to work, and assisting in their exposure to the public.

  • Assure that arts education is available to all students, so as to assist South Dakota youth to think more creatively, test better, and quality for the most fulfilling employment opportunities, as per national statistics regarding art education.

  • Encourage the inclusion of art in public buildings, which inspires the public and connects various aspects of the community.
