Dublin Arts Council engages the community, cultivates creativity and fosters life-long learning through the arts.
Dublin Arts Council began in 1983 as an ad-hoc committee to bring the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to the dedication of Scioto Park. The success of this activity encouraged the committee to form Dublin Arts Council.
Dublin Arts Council administers the internationally recognized Dublin Art in Public Places program, curates an on-site year-round Visual Arts Series in the only gallery of its kind in Dublin, hosts classes and workshops for all ages, hosts summer ARTcamps for children, and further supports the community through annual Community Arts Grants to Dublin-based nonprofit arts organizations. Dublin Arts Council has presented the popular summer DAC Sundays at Scioto concert series each year since the organization's founding in 1983.
