Arts & Culture Commission

Along with the Edina Art Center staff, this working Commission strives to build a vibrant community through support of arts and culture in Edina, and guides and supports general development of artistic initiatives in the City of Edina, including the Edina Art Center. The Commission provides recommendations to the City Council concerning collaboration, communication, facilities, activities and programs in art and cultural activities.

The Arts & Culture Commission was established in May 2013 to help build a vibrant community through art and culture as the City Council finds that the encouragement and enhancement of the arts in Edina is vital to the social and cultural well-being of the City and its residents.
