City of Edmonds Arts Commission

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Edmonds is located on Puget Sound in Snohomish County, WA. Founded in 1975, the City of Edmonds Arts Commission (EAC) ensures the arts are a vital part of Edmonds quality of life, economic vitality and central identity. The EAC meets monthly and is empowered to advise and make recommendations to the Mayor, City Council or other City commissions or boards on matters pertaining to the arts. The commission is comprised of seven appointed Commissioners who are residents of Edmonds and who serve staggered four-year terms. By ordinance, four of the positions require a professional background in the arts.  

Arts Commission programs and partnerships in the literary, visual and performing arts highlight Edmonds as a cultural destination with rich artistic resources. Programs include: 

  • Rotating Visual Art Exhibits at the Frances Anderson Center and City Hall (program temporarily suspended until further notice due to COVID restrictions)
  • Temporary public art program On the Fence
  • Outstanding permanent Public Art installations featuring Northwest artists.
  • Write on the Sound, a nationally recognized writers' conference (online in 2020 and 2021. Format for 2022 "tba" in the spring)
  • Free outdoor Summer Concerts in the parks.
