The Mission of the Fredericksburg Arts Commission is to promote, support and expand the arts as an integral part of life for all people in the Fredericksburg area. The Commission advises the City on policy and program development, oversees the grants and public arts programs, advocates for the arts and acts as liaison between the arts community and the City.

Vision

FAC’s vision is to serve as a valuable resource for all things arts-related in our community. To build this resource, we provide services with and for artists, arts organizations, and arts educators, and advocate on behalf of arts interest to local and state governments.

  • Fosters artistic growth in the region by providing information resources, hosting celebratory arts events, and co-sponsoring community cultural events and projects.
  • Advocates for the arts by creating a unified voice for encouragement of arts support at local, state, and national levels and by drawing connections between the arts and the community.
  • Coordinates programs for partnership that educate citizens about the arts, increases access to the arts, and provide forums that address art-related issues in our community.
