Art enhances public places and brings uniqueness and interest to our community.
The City of Arlington supports the acquisition of art for public places. In 2007, the City Council adopted an ordinance that sets aside 1% of the cost of a City of Arlington construction project for the acquisition of new public art.
The Arlington Arts Council facilitates the acquisition of the works. The Arlington Arts Council is a non-profit organization committed to bringing quality art experiences to the community of Arlington. The AAC holds an annual art auction that raises money for public art projects. Regular meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m., at Hadley Hall 18513 59th Avenue NE, Arlington.
