Northern Lights Arts Council sponsors numerous annual events: art exhibits featuring area and local artists, Student Art Show, art classes, Rendezvous Art Fair, Missoula Children's Theater, community theater, musicals, and the Christmas Tour of Homes.
A major accomplishment was the purchase and restoration of the ROXY Movie Theater in 1997. In addition to movies, the theater is the venue for community dramas and musicals.
It shall be the purpose of Northern Lights Arts Council (NLAC) to aid, encourage, advise and correlate all activities dedicated to the promotion of cultural arts and humanities in Cavalier County and its surrounding areas as may be found feasible and to integrate such activities into the total life of the communities served by the Council.
