Northwest Ohio abounds with culture and creativity. The arts strengthen the economy, drive tourism and business, and improve academic performance. The Black Swamp Arts Council advances and empowers the arts by providing services and funding for programming that encourages and assists literary, performing and visual artists in achieving standards of professional excellence.


Founded in 1999, Black Swamp Arts Council is a non-profit arts organization that serves rural Northwest Ohio.
