About SRAC

The Creamery Arts Center will be closed to the public until further notice due to COVID-19 response. The SRAC staff is working remotely and available via email. Contact information is at the bottom of this page. 


The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) connects people and the arts. We support some of the most prominent visual, performing, literary and film/media arts organizations within 27 counties, the largest outreach of any in the state of Missouri.

The SRAC has a 21-member board and has a full-time Executive Director, Programs/Exhibition Director, Marketing/Development Director, Office & Facility Manager, and a part-time Bookkeeper and Corporate Art Coordinator. In addition, there are several active volunteers who help with major events and projects. The SRAC has developed a solid internship program with local universities.

The SRAC's operations are funded through memberships, festival/event proceeds, grants, donations and a portion of the local hotel/motel tax.


SRAC's mission is to transform lives and enrich our community through the arts.


SRAC makes the arts a vital part of the community, which is a place where the arts are essential.
