Welcome to The Arts Council Wichita Falls: The Kemp Center For The Arts and The Forum.


The mission of the Arts Council is to nurture and strengthen the artistic, cultural, and educational quality of the community and surrounding area.

Success starts with access.
Access to art is crucial because it enhances quality of life and enriches our understanding of the world. Art stimulates imagination, inspires creativity, and promotes critical thinking. It provides a medium for self-expression and can also foster empathy and social cohesion.

Inclusive and equitable access ensures that everyone can benefit from the transformative power of art.
