Welcome to the Arts Council of South Wood County

Hello, and thank you for visiting our web site. We hope you find it user-friendly and will come back to it on a regular basis to stay updated on what’s happening at the Arts Council! While you’re here, check out the remainder of our 2017-18  season, from Steve Lippia: A Swingin’ Holiday Affair in December to Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers in March.

While we have two shows in the books already, we remain busy at the Arts Council. In addition to preparing for the next show, we are working on our 2018-19 performance season. We’ve been collecting surveys and will continue to accept them at the December show. In January, we will draw a name for a winner of a free season ticket. Thank you for taking time to share your ideas with us. Our programming committee takes into consideration the many requests of our patrons. Unfortunately, with only six shows each season, it’s difficult to accommodate everyone. We shoot for variety. There are some exciting shows in the works, and as soon as everything is finalized, we’ll announce it at a show and on the web site.

To purchase tickets for upcoming shows, you can do so through this web site; or if you prefer to stop by, our office hours are 10-2:30 Monday through Thursday. You can find us at 1040 8th Street South, Suite 101, Wisconsin Rapids. Or give us a call at 715.424.2787 during business hours, and we can assist you with your selection. As the holiday season approaches, remember that Arts Council gift certificates are a great idea. Stop by and see us, or call with your requests, and we’ll help you cross something off your to-do list!

Sponsorship of performances is a major way that the Arts Council is able to continue providing quality entertainment for our community, whether through monetary or in-kind support. The following sponsors need to be recognized…some have supported us faithfully through sponsorship, while others are new. Each one is important to us:

  • Aspirus
  • B104.9 FM (Muzzy Broadcasting)
  • Mead Witter Foundation, Inc.
  • Midwest Communications
  • NRG Media
  • Quality Plus Printing
  • Renaissance Learning
  • Solarus
  • Stifel (Terry Lang)
  • Thrivent Financial for Lutherans
  • WAOW Channel 9
  • WSAW Channel 7

Please check out the “Supporters and Sponsors of the Arts 2017-2018” page for all of the businesses who have either provided a donation, an ad, or sponsorship. Stop by and support them.

On behalf of the Arts Council, we wish you a blessed Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season!

See you at the PAC…
