Tell us your arts story

ACAC logo

UPDATED Feb. 18: What have you gained personally from your own interactions with cultural happenings, live arts events and/or public art in our town? And what would you like to see, going forward?

These are questions the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ACAC) ask as we evaluate our work over the past few years and look forward to 2023 and beyond.

Did you take part in a conversation about Arlington's culture? Enjoy a public music, poetry or visual art event? Has your family added your voices to one of our collaborative community art projects? Did your encounters with public art along the Minuteman Bikeway or Mass Ave leave you with any thoughts you'd like to share?

It's been a challenging time for community arts and for cultural organizations. We've all suffered from lack of audiences. We've missed out on public performances and shared moments of enjoyment. What do YOU miss?

Share your feedback with us. Send us testimonials if you feel so moved. We'd love to hear about the things you liked, the things you didn't like, or events/projects you would like to see in upcoming seasons in Arlington.

Arts Arlington needs you

Have you wondered who is responsible for bringing the innovative public art, music and cultural activities to Arlington? It’s people like you who work on the front lines as well as behind-the-scenes as volunteers on the Community Engagement Committee, as part of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture.

We are seeking vibrant community members interested in making a difference for the arts in our town. Volunteering on this committee will give you the opportunity to present new ideas, share your skills or expertise, meet others who share the same interests, and make new friends.

Come learn what we are all about at an informational Zoom meeting on Monday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m. Contact: volunteers at to register for the meeting, and we’ll send a Zoom link.
