Mayor's Art Show

The Mayor’s Art Show (MAS) is part of a larger celebration of contemporary visual art, artists and the City’s public spaces. Art is shared interaction, cultural exchange, and lodges in the very heart of what makes us grateful to live here. Art speaks to everyone. 

The City recognizes the hard work required of artists, who dedicate body, mind and spirit to the creation of their vision. We believe in the power of art to establish space for citizens where safety, success, and well-being are not pre-determined by race, class, sexual orientation, gender, age, mental or physical ability. We celebrate art production and highlight the accomplishments of artists who enrich our community.
