Salina Arts & Humanties

As a department of the City of Salina, Salina Arts & Humanities (SA&H) has served a unique role in arts advocacy since 1966. SA&H is noted nationally for its services as a valued component of balanced local governance and for the financial and other support it provides many area arts organizations. Among the longtime programs SA&H directly produces are the Smoky Hill River Festival, Smoky Hill Museum, Arts Infusion Program, Horizons Grants Program, Community Art & Design, and Cultural Creative Connections Newsletter.

Key to the long-range focus of Salina Arts & Humanities is four goals that comprise the city’s Big Ideas Community Cultural Plan, adopted in 2008.
