The Ash Creek Arts Center is incredibly grateful to the Oregon Legislature, the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Polk County  Cultural Coalition for Coronavirus Relief Fund Cultural Support funding. It has allowed us to assemble and distribute three different Free Art Packs to the Monmouth-Independence community over the last few months. 


When you match your tax-deductible donation to the Ash Creek Arts Center with a matching donation to the Oregon Cultural Trust, you'll get that second donation back as a tax credit!

We believe access to and engagement with the arts is a fundamental right and that the arts are an essential cornerstone to a healthy democracy. Our goal is to serve the people of Independence and Monmouth, Oregon, and the surrounding area by offering a broad range of opportunities for all community members to enjoy and participate in the visual, literary and performing arts.
