Help us reach our goal of $3,000 by December 31st to fund art classes and experiences in 2024!

Our mission is to connect Art and Community. Your support makes a difference!

Dakota Center for the Arts, made up of a board of volunteers, has a long history of connecting arts and community by organizing the annual Eagan Art Festival, participating in local events, offering scholarships towards arts education, and funding art classes. 

The 29th Annual Eagan Art Festival festival was held June 24 & 25, 2023, and included artists showcasing approximately a dozen mediums, interactive artist demonstrations for the whole family, a children's puppet show, and musical entertainment! More information about this annual festival can be found at (link) Eagan Art Festival.

The college art scholarships are provided to high school students going into the arts. More information about these scholarships and applications can be found at (link) Eagan Community Foundation

Our organization also assists in funding non resident senior art classes at the Eagan Art House, volunteer support for other organizations, and is active in the September Eagan Art Block, hosted by the Eagan Art House. More information about art classes and the Eagan Art Block can be found at (link) Eagan Art House.

Thank you to those who joined us and supported us this year! It is only through the support of donations, sponsors, volunteers, and grants that our mission is possible.

As we prepare for 2024, and Give to the Max Day - November 16th, we are accepting early donations towards our cause! This year, we will specifically use a portion of Give MN funds, from now until December 31st, to go towards funding senior students taking art classes at the Eagan Art House. Please help us offer assistance so that the opportunity to offer arts in our community is open to EVERYONE!

Join us:

Donate during our Give to the Max campaign, November 1st - December 31st, for a portion of the funds will go directly to senior students taking art classes at the Eagan Art House. The remainder of the funds will go towards the following:

  1. The 30th Annual Eagan Art Festival June 29th and 30th, 2024.   Two days of fantastic art, free interactive artist demonstrations, and entertainment.  www.eaganartfestival.org  
  2. College Scholarships for Eagan high school seniors.  Seniors planning to go into an arts related profession are encouraged to apply through the Eagan Community Foundation.  Applications are available in the late winter, www.eaganfoundation.org 

Interested in other ways to support arts in your community? There are many volunteer opportunities including board service and  committees; we have room for enthusiastic arts supporters with all skill sets! Contact christy@eaganartfestival.org
