Our Mission: The Norman Arts Council directly engages the community through the support of public art, events, and arts education and provides funding, marketing, and resources to artists and organizations.
Over the years, the Norman Arts Council has granted over $2 million to dozens of Norman nonprofit organizations and serves over 13,000 Norman Public School children with our Arts-in-Education programs.
Along with the City of Norman, the NAC established the Downtown Norman Arts District and the Norman Public Arts Board, creating and inspiring the arts and cultural events in the entire Norman Community. The signature event of the Norman Arts Council is the 2nd Friday Circuit of Art a monthly, citywide celebration of art. 2nd Friday is collaboration between artists, art organizations, and businesses. Whether you like dance, painting, photography, or music, there will be something for you to see and hear during the 2nd Friday of this month in Norman.
The NAC also co-founded the Norman Music Festival, an exciting event drawing tens of thousands of people to the Norman Area each spring.
