The Cultural Arts Commission and Visual Arts
In addition to the exciting events the Cultural Arts Commission hosts, the commission is also responsible for selection and placement of art in city buildings and on city property. The Cultural Arts Commission is proud to showcase local artists, whether this is accomplished by purchasing their art for use in city buildings or by providing them the opportunity to showcase their work in the Government Center lobby.

When the Government Center opened in 2008, the commission had the opportunity to select artwork to place throughout the building. These exciting pieces include:
