 Who Are We?

 MISSION: The purpose of Arts in Bartlett is to improve the community by providing access to the arts. This 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, founded in 2002, brings diverse events to the Bartlett area, so that the multitude of cultural arts can be experienced and enjoyed by all. Through its activities, Arts in Bartlett wants to make the full variety of media and multicultural experiences accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, whether they want to create, actively participate, experiment,or simply appreciate the arts.

In 2017, Arts in Bartlett ended its 15th year of carrying out its mission of providing more access to the arts. It is now involved in the visual, performing and literary arts.  

We continue to work toward the vision of Bartlett and the surrounding community as one that values and supports the arts. Much progress has been made, and the momentum is building for the cultural arts to have an even larger impact on Bartlett’s economy and quality of life. 

Our goal is to encourage all residents to make the arts an integral part of their lives. 

VISION: Arts in Bartlett envisions a community where the overall quality of life is enhanced and each individual is made richer through an open participation in the arts.
