Las Vegas Arts Commission

“Art is a key component to having the world-class city that the residents of Las Vegas envision,” Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman said. “Creativity and beauty flourish in the city’s Arts District, through our Public Arts programs and our museums and venues like the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. I’d ask all residents to support the arts in Las Vegas so that our cultural offerings can continue to grow and excel.”

Mission statement:
The city of Las Vegas Arts Commission is responsible for the creation of permanent and temporary public art projects that transform public space, stimulate intellectual discourse, and celebrate cultural diversity. Through a commitment to excellence that prioritizes community collaboration, the Las Vegas Arts Commission nurtures and promotes artists, elevates civic awareness and helps contribute to a sense of place that fosters creative enterprise, generates cultural tourism and keeps Las Vegas at the forefront of global interest.

Created by city ordinance in 1987, the Arts Commission is comprised of a 12-member board appointed by the Mayor and City Council. The Arts Commission funds public art projects through the city’s one percent for the arts program and oversees the commissioning of all artwork located on city property. The city of Las Vegas Arts Commission is administered through the Office of Cultural Affairs.
