|HVCA is a 501(c) (3) not for profit organization registered with the State of Michigan and the federal government. Founded in 1999, the council is an organization dedicated to the belief that community life is enriched and enhanced by the arts in many forms.
We are committed to working with established visual and performing arts programs and groups that exist in and around Western Oakland County. The council serves to form a uniting voice for support for the arts and supports activities and programs that meet the needs of each unique community represented.
As a vibrant, thriving art center the organization is widely respected as an enabler for the development and growth of artists and performers, providing outlets in all media. HVCA regularly offers outstanding exhibits, performances and educational classes that have broad appeal across the full spectrum of audiences.
Funding for the council work comes from membership fees, donations, fundraising events and grants from state, corporate and private sources. Monetary or in- kind contributions are welcomed from individuals, groups, estates, businesses, charities, and private sources.
The HVCA has a volunteer Board of Directors with a part time Executive Director and Office Assistant.
