Quinebaug Valley Council for Arts and Humanities

The Quinebaug Valley Council for the Arts and Humanities (QVCAH), familiarly known as the Arts Center, is a membership association dedicated to perpetuating the arts and humanities in the area. The association was formed in 1977 by a group of people concerned with the role of the arts and humanities in the lives of local citizens – before the days of mandated local cultural commissions. As government funding for local cultural endeavors rapidly disappears, the role of the Quinebaug Valley Arts Center again becomes more important than ever in our lives and the lives of our children.
QVCAH serves the following 25 communities in South Central Massachusetts and Northeast Connecticut
