The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year. The organization boasts arts and culture in the community and offers a variety of resources.

Diverse education programs offer lifelong learning, inspire creativity, raise appreciation, and enhance the quality of arts in the region. It is the largest provider of quality arts programs in Tulsa County.

Artists-in-the-Schools began in 1963 and reaches more than 120,000 youth from the area each year. The Harwelden Institute continues to engage over 20,000 school children and 350 classroom teachers. Oklahoma Chautauqua, first established in 1989, has the distinction of being the longest-running and largest living history series in Oklahoma.

Recently, the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa was named a Top-Rated Arts Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits.

The Hardesty Arts Center is scheduled to open in fall 2012. The Center will feature multi-use exhibition spaces, studio spaces for artists, classrooms, offices and a catering kitchen. Whether an artist is established in the community or just beginning to explore their talent, the center will be both a resource and platform.
