Access the Arts was established in 2018 and certified by the State of Ohio as a non-profit. It is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our primary purpose is to provide opportunities that unite the community and offer a platform for those who would like to share their talents to inspire others in all art forms. We strive to provide an exposure to the arts and interactive opportunities for the elderly, the disabled and the underprivileged, and to promote appreciation for and education in the fine and performing arts for people of all ages. We are funded by grants, corporate donations and contributions from individuals. If you would like to support our mission, please click the Donation tab above.
We are providing music and art therapy for the youth at the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center. We also offer fine and performing arts assemblies for area schools, and host several hands-on educational and interactive concerts in our community that are inclusive of all who want to participate. The arts help us to celebrate differences, encourage creativity, and unite us with a common inspiration.

We are excited to host a free concert by recording artist and singer/songwriter, Mark Leach! After building a large and passionate fan base throughout Northeast Ohio and then Nashville, Mark has brought his music back home. In addition to headlining his own shows, Mark has toured with Granger Smith and opened for Dwight Yoakum, Scott McCreery, John Pardi, and Eric Church. Bring a chair and take advantage of the chance to see this country star in our hometown. Access the Arts will serve cherry cobbler and ice cream. In case of rain, the concert will be in the town hall.
