Ovation, America’s only arts network, has partnered with two of Oregon’s distinguished arts institutions for its pioneering Arts Across the Heartland initiative, which recognizes outstanding arts organizations and cultural institutions across the country.  The BendFilm Festival and Rogue Valley Symphony join Ovation in its mission to shine a spotlight on the places and people who elevate and enrich their communities through the arts.

As part of the partnership, Ovation has created custom public service announcements (PSAs) for both the BendFilm Festival and Rogue Valley Symphony highlighting the attributes of each and the organizations’ contributions to their communities through the arts. The PSAs are currently airing on Ovation TV, as well as on the digital Arts Across the Heartland platform.

Ovation recognizes that the contributions of local arts organizations and cultural institutions do not often benefit from exposure on a national platform, and the Arts Across the Heartland initiative provides this kind of support. The organizations being highlighted through national PSAs under this initiative can be accessed via an interactive map at https://www.ovationtv.com/sfta/heartland/.

“Ovation remains a dedicated champion of the arts and we are pleased and proud to shine a national spotlight on incredible arts organizations like the BendFilm Festival and Rogue Valley Symphony,” said Liz Janneman, EVP of Network Strategy, Ovation. “Through our ‘Arts Across the Heartland’ initiative, we hope to encourage continued support of the arts by underscoring their positive impact on our nation, our communities, our economy and our lives.”
