the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance - Aristotle

The Arts Council brings all genres of art to the community of Mountain Home and Elmore County through a variety of events. Our Performing Arts Committee, probably our best known, brings four tickets events, annually, as well as our Summer Concert Series, done in partnership with the Mountain Home Parks and Recreation Department. Of those ticketed events, at least half are presented as outreach events, as well, to the schools. Our Literary Arts Committee brings to you the annual publication of the Whistle Pig, a literary journal of juried writings by local authors, as well as art pieces selected by the Guild. Our bi-annual Coffee House is also hosted by the Literary Committee every fall, featuring the Whistle Pig, and in the spring a published and accomplished author. The Visual Arts Guild helps to place visual art in the community eye during events like the Friends of the Library book sale and other community events planned throughout the year.
