The arts are alive and well in the Iowa Lakes Corridor. There are many local artists, studios and galleries throughout our region along with any number of performing artists. We are home to community theaters and the Okoboji Summer Theatre. Many of our local artists participate in the Artisans Road Trip (ART) held in October of each year. Check out the theatres and night life sections to find things to do.
Our local art centers host quality and a diverse array of exhibits each month, featuring national, regional and local artists. Each offers classes for the novice and experienced artist alike.
