Our Objectives

An astonishing range of creative people live and work in Jefferson County, using their talents to create poetry, pottery, paintings, plays, performance, photographs, novels, histories, fabric art, sculpture, carvings, installations, music and dance and the fine art and culture in all its glorious forms. Artist studios, galleries museums, theaters, readings and concerts abound. AHA! is part of this arts community.

Jefferson Arts Council (JAC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that exists to encourage and support the dynamic role arts and culture play in the county. Founded in 1975 as the Jefferson County Arts Council, membership in JAC is open to any county resident.

In 2010, JAC led the effort that awarded Jefferson County the West Virginia Certified Arts Community designation. Also a United Way partner, AHA! works with volunteers and professionals throughout the community to encourage and support arts and humanities programs.
