Sharing our vision of an artful life, where access to, and appreciation of art is the norm for all people, not the exception.

For nearly 20 years, we’ve been dedicated to the development and promotion of the arts in the Big Stone Lake Area. Our goal is to build community through the creation and appreciation of art.

Get involved!dsc_0237

Big Stone Arts Council is a collection of artists and art appreciators who each have a talent and passion to share. If you would like to get involved, we invite you to attend our monthly meetings, which take place on the second Tuesday of each month. We begin at 6:30 pm in the lower level of the Big Stone County Library in Ortonville, Minnesota. This is a great place to make your voice heard, meet new people, or just check out what is new with arts in the community.


You do not have to be an artist to attend our meetings! As a team, we are able to accomplish more in our community and we have fun doing it! We strive to represent all different members of our community and to make our embrace more encompassing.
