Dear Friends of the Arts,


The De Soto Arts Council is excited to announce that the 2021 De Soto Fall Fine Arts and Crafts Show is back, and full of more artful creativity than ever! 


We've already been busy this year, working to unite our community through the Arts. This summer we teamed up with the City of De Soto to fund a long-term art installation! Make sure you visit the front lawn of City Hall and view the beautiful metal sculpture now on display. “Native Spirit” was created by area artist Tim Mispagel. Many of the surrounding cities have invested in the Arts, and now De Soto has joined in this endeavor!


This year's art show will feature a wide variety of media such as paintings, photography, jewelry, handcrafted wood and ceramics. The Arts Council has also extended an invitation to Johnson County Development Services and the De Soto High School district art students to be our guests in displaying and selling their art. By harnessing the energy and creativity of our youth and community, we can create an enduring cycle of Arts involvement that will benefit our community both now and in the future.


As a leader in our community, we hope you realize your important role in the Arts! We are looking for sponsors interested in building and uniting De Soto and the surrounding community through this important event. Your sponsorship will go toward the many aspects of organizing and hosting this community art show; operating costs, advertising, promotions, and awards. A detailed list of the sponsorship opportunities and perks is below for your consideration and review. Thank you for considering sponsorship. 


​Sincerely, 
The De Soto Arts Council
