About the Commission

The purpose of the Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission is to encourage cultural growth in the city and to ensure that art, culture and entertainment are central elements of the quality of life for city residents. To this end, the commission will encourage the development of cultural opportunities and resources, as well as the creative, social and community benefits they provide.

The Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission members make recommendations to the city council regarding art projects, budgets and schedules. The commission also recommends to council the selection and commissioning of artists with respect to design, execution and placement of works of art for which appropriations have been made.
