The Allied Arts
What we do
The Allied Arts ensures dynamic, sustainable, cultural opportunities by enriching our Communities through the advancement of the Arts. The Allied Arts has been collaborating creative community connections for the Arts in Rapid City and the Black Hills since 1971. Allied Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
We manage the Pailing Family grant. It offers opportunities for invidual artists, organizations, and emerging artists. We also offer Fiscal Sponsorships to individual artists and organizations that do not have a nonprofit status. We created our Share-a-Seat program that gives students and seniors a chance to experience Arts events for free!
Since our founding in 1971, we’ve played a key role in ensuring the health and vitality of Arts and culture in Rapid City with a mission to support, strengthen and promote Arts, culture

Impacted by the arts
This is how the Allied Arts
“Scientific research and other studies have demonstrated that arts education can enhance American students’ math and language skills and improve test scores which in turn increase chances of higher education and good jobs in the future..”Thad Cochran
“As president of the Rapid City Concert
We are strongly in support of the Allied Arts and would endorse them to any arts organization.
“The arts are as important to the community as good schools, good jobs
“This was so wonderful. I am so thankful we were allowed to go, what an experience for the kids and I, that we never would have had without the Allied Arts donation. Thank you so much. It was absolutely fantastic. Keanu enjoyed watching the men and asked a lot of questions. Sydnee really liked the performance, the final performance they both really liked! Now we are off to GOODWILL this weekend to try and find costumes. Let the performances begin!”Volunteer
“I have now been studying music seriously for well over a decade and have adored this art form since the moment I first picked up a cello. I am forever grateful for the guidance and support I received in Rapid City from teachers, mentors and community endeavors (such as the Allied Arts!) before moving to Greeley to further pursue this passion. Furthering the artistic vision that so many musicians, scholars, and leaders have established before
I am so grateful for Rapid City’s high regard of arts education and for all that the Allied Arts does to support the continual growth of our community’s diversity and involvement in the arts. I am so grateful for Allied Arts past support and I am honored to be a part this city’s thriving creative community!!“Jessica Bachman
