Arts for All is an alliance of art groups in Lawton, Oklahoma that was formed in 1977 to collectively foster and raise funds to keep the arts alive in our community and schools. Arts for All, Inc., as an "umbrella" organization, enables an exceptional synergy of people with a wide variety of interests to work together ensuring the arts continue to thrive in all of Southwest Oklahoma.


 "Arts for All - all year round!"


AFA member groups present world-class arts events and extend arts into the schools throughout the year to well over 100,000 people annually. In addition, AFA member groups provide the volunteers needed to present major arts events such as the AFA Festival and the AFA Gala. These events let the public enjoy the arts while raising funds which member art groups use to keep the arts strong in our community and schools. This is especially important in this time of limited public funding of the arts and the elimination of art teachers in schools.
