The city of Las Vegas Arts Commission was established in 1987 and is operated through the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The Commission is responsible for encouraging 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.

In addition to the city’s staff administering the program, the Commission consists of all volunteer appointed members who serve four-year terms and are eligible for reappointment to a second consecutive term.

The Arts Commission meets regularly at 4 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month, September through June, in the City Clerk’s Office on the second floor of Las Vegas City Hall, 495 S. Main St. To view more information about city of Las Vegas boards and commissions, apply to be a board member and see the current openings, visit https://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/Government/Boards-Commissions.
