|Republican Valley Arts Council|
The Republican Valley Arts Council (RVAC) is a Non-profit Corporation Act that was formed in 1993 for the purpose of acting as a coordinating education and service organization to foster, promote, encourage and increase the knowledge, appreciation, and practice of the arts in the Republican Valley of Nebraska.
The RVAC sponsors a variety of programs and entertainment during the year. In the past, RVAC has sponsored such events as the Missoula Children's Theatre performances in the fall, humanity programs held at the Opera House and at the Starke Round Barn, and The Colorbox Art Exhibit in the gallery of the Opera House.
Upcoming events sponsored by the RVAC include story-tellers at the Starke Round Barn during Septemberfest and, during Street Car Days, a "wandering" magician, sidewalk chalk art, and face painting. The Missoula Children's Theatre's "The Little Mermaid", performed at the Opera House on August 7 and 8, is also sponsored in part by RVAC.
