Cultural Arts Commission

Eleven Rockville residents volunteer their time and talent to celebrate and promote the fine and performing arts that reflect the city's diversity. In addition, the Commissioners help to incubate and foster additional artistic and cultural events through their advisory function to the Mayor and City Council. The Commission takes seriously its goal of making Rockville a vibrant arts destination. Many Commissioners are artists themselves, and they serve for overlapping three-year terms. We encourage community members of all backgrounds to take part and reflect Rockville's diverse population. 

One of the primary responsibilities of the Commission is to recommend public art installations to the Mayor and City Council. This task is performed by the Art in Public Places subcommittee. You can visit some of these artworks virtually through the Rockville Arts in Public Places Map.
