Darke County Center for the Arts representatives met with Karen Kasich, First Lady of Ohio to express the importance of DCCA’s presence in our community and thank her for her strong support and involvement in the arts throughout the state.

Throughout the day, DCCA representatives also met with Senate President Keith Faber and Senator Bill Beagle as well as State Representatives Jim Buchy and Stephen Huffman to share DCCA’s achievements and thank them for their strong support of DCCA’s mission and the arts in Darke County.

Darke County Center for the Arts (DCCA) is a community arts council whose purpose is to promote all art forms and to expand opportunities for cultural enrichment within the county. As the only Presenting Arts organization in Darke County, the DCCA Board of Directors feels the compelling responsibility for making the Arts accessible to all age groups of all economic sectors in our county. DCCA is a not-for-profit 501C3 organization that depends upon strong government support to enable the fulfillment of its mission. Ticket prices are kept low to make performances as affordable as possible. Ticket revenues account for approximately 25% of the total income necessary to present high quality performing artists and cover the administrative expenses involved in carrying out the day-to-day activities of a presenting arts organization. The remaining funds come from strong government and community support. Thanks to continued community and government support, DCCA has been able to maintain a strong financial position, without accessing its reserves.

DCCA’s desire is to offer quality programming, encouraging cultural enrichment in our community, and to do our part to make Darke County, Ohio a great place to live. For more information contact the DCCA office at (937)547-0908 or www.CenterForArts.net.

Darke County Center for the Arts presents and promotes performing and fine arts, encouraging cultural enrichment. DCCA is also committed to the preservation of Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall as an important cultural center in the community.
