The arts aim to awaken our emotions and widen our horizons. It is as important to the total development of our culture and humanity as any science or technology.
The Arts Infusion program presents thoughtful, curriculum-based, inspiring encounters between students and the arts. The Program guides and coordinates teaching artists working with teachers and students in the USD 305 school district to impact the core curriculum through arts-based learning.
Arts Infusion creates an atmosphere in which the artist, audiences, volunteers, and funders of the future are grown and nourished by introducing and teaching the arts disciplines of dance, drama, music, and visual arts to Salina students.

Salina’s Community Art & Design Program was initiated in the year 2000. The Community Art & Design Policy was adopted in 2006 to facilitate the inclusion of artists and art and design projects in selected City projects. City/Community representative processes follow nationally developed guidelines for selecting artists and artwork. SAH facilitates the Program through the review and recommendations of the Community Art & Design Committee.
The Salina Arts & Humanities director convenes a monthly meeting of the Cultural Roundtable, a consortium of museums, galleries, performance venues, educational institutions, and service organizations collaborating to grow professionally and schedule programs, exhibits, and activities of interest to Salina residents and visitors.
