Operation Art Adventures™ was established in 1982 to provide cultural enrichment to Salem-Keizer school children. Because schools were financially unable to provide professional entertainment as a learning experience, the need was apparent. Assistance League of Salem stepped in to fill this need with a stated goal of introducing children to the performing arts in an educational and entertaining way.
