City of Edmonds Arts Commission
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Edmonds is located on Puget Sound in Snohomish County, WA. In 2018, downtown Edmonds was designated as Washington state's first Certified Creative District.
Founded in 1975, the City of Edmonds Arts Commission (EAC) works to ensure that 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:
- Write on the Sound, a nationally recognized writers' conference.
- Free outdoor Summer Concerts in the parks
- Rotating Visual Art Exhibits at the Frances Anderson Center and City Hall
- Temporary public art program, On the Fence
- Outstanding permanent Public Art installations featuring Northwest artists.
The EAC supports a variety of additional programs through partnerships and sponsorship, including Music at the Library with Friends of the Edmonds Library and Edmonds Sno-Isle Library, and community outreach programs Edmonds Center for the Arts.
