About What We Do


The Magic Valley Arts Council is a private non-profit organization whose mission is to “to foster and promote experiences in the arts and culture for all people in the greater Twin Falls area”. We act as an umbrella arts organization, bringing together arts groups, individual artists, patrons and our community as a whole.

In 1994, the organization was designated the official arts agency of the City of Twin Falls, however, we are not a City Department, nor are we governed by the City. Our Board of Directors is comprised of community-minded citizens, artists and business people, working together to encourage enjoyment of and participation in the arts.
