What We Do
We recognize and celebrate the arts as a unifying agent in our community; we believe the arts strengthen and sustain our city because of its social, economic, educational, and community impact.
We believe that art is a universal language, and understanding art in its various forms enriches lives, expands minds, and allows individuals to flourish. Arts education and exposure are essential to cultivating the next generation of arts patrons.
We believe the arts are a vital part of a healthy, equitable society to which people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy and participate. With this purpose, we award grants to our diverse artists and arts organizations to help sustain and support their creative impact.
