Arts Commons’ mission is to bring the arts… to life. Our vision is a creative and compassionate society inspired through the arts. Despite our doors being closed and given the current social and political climate, our mission and vision are now more important than ever.
We have compiled a number of resources to help our community learn and grow, help artists in their practice, and help educators and parents with home-schooling. Additional resources will be added periodically.
To go deeper, please read our President and CEO’s letter to the community regarding the Black Lives Matter movement and visit our new blog. The Arts Commons Blog provides you with rich content, interviews, and behind-the-scenes stories.
