Our lives pulse with creativity. Choruses sing. Students dance. Writers try their voice at an open mic night. And a wide range of performances, lectures, book clubs and exhibitions keep us learning well into retirement. We create art. We explore art. We ARE art.
The Roanoke Arts Commission, a volunteer body appointed by City Council, increases the collective impact of arts and culture in the community by:
– Advocating for arts and cultural initiatives and investment,
– Developing and Implementing the City’s Public Art Plan,
– Advancing the City’s Arts and Cultural Plan, and
– Guiding City investments in arts and culture.
We just celebrated the start of a community transformation in The Year of the Artist.
