As America’s only arts network, the Ovation TV channel is dedicated to showcasing best-in-class programming about artists, their work and the powerful impact art has on each of us. In our community we are passionate about providing access to the arts for everyone.
This means going beyond what we provide on-air and online and driving change on a local, regional and national level. Since 2007, Ovation has forged valuable partnerships across the nation with cultural institutions, arts agencies, individual artists and arts education organizations, providing more than $15 million in direct support and donated media – something unprecedented for an independent television network.
Through Ovation’s Corporate Relations department, the network provides support and sponsorships to national and regionally based nonprofit arts organizations.
The Ovation Foundation launched in 2014 to provide a focus for Ovation’s philanthropic, advocacy, and educational initiatives. Since its founding, the foundation has supported nonprofit arts organizations across the country in the areas of artistic placemaking, STEAM education, and the Creative Economy.
