Recognizing the importance of the arts to a community’s livability and economic health, the City of Vallejo created the Commission on Culture and the Arts. The Commission’s mission is to serve and collaborate with Vallejo’s many cultural arts organizations and its many artists in all mediums, and to act as a catalyst in further developing a vibrant and cohesive arts community, strengthening arts education, enhancing cultural tourism and economic development.
Arts and culture programs and services play an important role in the community’s social, emotional, and economic well-being. Activities in this diverse service area include public festivals, events and celebrations, films, lectures, exhibitions, arts education in the schools and adult learning, visual and performing arts, public art, among others.
Such endeavours form the essence of how a community remembers and celebrate its past, express it through diverse mediums, and how its citizens connect to their community socially, culturally, spiritually, and emotionally.
