We know that when creative potential is unleashed, it creates positive change in all aspects of community life. Put another way, when the arts thrive, communities thrive! We’re committed to integrating creativity into all aspects of community life by bringing leadership and energy to the Reedsburg Area's growing arts sector.
2018 was another year of hard work for Reedsburg ArtsLink with many positive creative outcomes-- some planned, and some unexpected! Some magic happened in our community in 2018 that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of generous arts advocates like you, who believe in the power of creativity to build community.
Please check out some of ArtsLink’s 2018 highlights in the photos below--and consider a tax-deductible donation to help us continue our work of advancing a culture of creativity in our community in 2019 and beyond.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support!
