The Diamond Valley Arts Council(DVAC), founded in 2004, is an organization dedicated to promoting awareness of the activities, events and venues for enjoying and participating in the various forms of artistic expression and cultural opportunities available to our community. Through partnerships with individuals, arts- and culture-related groups and local businesses, as well as civic and governmental agencies, we strive to develop programs and create opportunities which stimulate and enrich the cultural, economic, and intellectual life of the community; positive quality of life issues for the community to experience.  These goals and ideals are summarized in our motto “Advancing the Arts – Creating Community”.

Publicity and advocacy are two other approaches which The DVAC utilizes to assure that the arts and culture are an important and integral aspect of the quality of life for the community.  Through our website, social media, electronic communications and our network of organizations, The DVAC offers a portal to the arts and cultural life of Hemet, San Jacinto and the communities surrounding the region of Diamond Valley Lake in Inland Southern California.

We also work closely with other local and regional non-profit organizations, civic groups, businesses, local and county governmental agencies to shape a community with a strong emphasis on the arts.  These efforts have been successful in having Arts and Culture Elements added to the General Plans for the cities of both Hemet and San Jacinto.  And, we continue to champion the arts as major contributor to a positive self-image for the community and emphasize that traveling to distant locations for quality entertainment is not necessary.  ARTS & CULTURE.  It’s here!  Enjoy it!  Live it!

DVACmainThe Diamond Valley Arts Center

is the home of The Diamond Valley Arts Council and serves as one of the primary ways through which we promote the arts.  Located on North Harvard St. in Hemet, the Arts Center provides The DVAC with a means to host a number of different art forms in a facility that is ideally situated near other art venues, restaurants and businesses associated with the arts and culture.

The rustic brick building includes two art galleries, a stage and seating for our regular monthly concerts along with periodic theatrical performances.  Plans are for our popular “3rd Sunday” jazz concerts to be joined by another monthly presentation that will feature other types of music.  Our gallery hosts rotating exhibitions of the works of local and regional artists plus occasional exhibits of nationally and internationally known artists.  The facility also includes space that is suitable for meetings, group presentations, workshops and instruction for students of all ages.  The Arts Center is available for rental by qualified groups with discounted rental rates for our independent Organizational Members.
