Empowering community through art

Just as it was at our founding in 1972, more than 50 years ago, Mid-America Arts Alliance continues to develop and nourish collaborative relationships to increase access to the arts and creativity for all Americans. In FY22, M-AAA continued to provide support and guidance to arts organizations, artists, and creatives as the pandemic stretched into its third year.

  • 3,685 artists and creatives served.
  • 471,773 people connected with art experiences.
  • Nearly $3 million in grants awarded to artists and arts organizations.
  • To states as far as Alaska and in rural communities as small as Lebanon, Kansas (population 178).
