Arts, Culture, and Special Events

We encourage the growth of arts, culture, and the creative economy in the City.

Some of the efforts we work on include these fields of art:

  • Humanities
  • Performing and Public art
  • Visual arts and Museums
  • Film and filmmaking
  • Music

We help build the reputation of the City in the arts community by supporting special events and festivals, art education groups and organizations, and creating more opportunities to display art in the public.

We also guide all agencies, departments, and programs in the City related to arts, culture, and special events.
