The Mayor’s Art Show (MAS) is part of a larger celebration of contemporary visual art, artists and the City’s public spaces. MAS celebrates local artists, art production and champions the visual arts. MAS recognizes the accomplishments of artists who are committed to enriching their communities through visual arts. Our intention is to cultivate diversity, equity, and access to the visual arts and artists. We envision a city of citizens whose success, safety and health are not pre-determined by their race, class, sexual orientation, gender, age, mental or physical ability.
In response to COVID-19, we are carefully considering the health and well-being of the community. The Mayor’s Art Show and Salon des Refusés are pivoting to online exhibitions to accommodate recommendations and requirements for community gatherings and safety.
Satellite art installations of selected artworks will be featured in vignettes of Mayor’s Art Show to be enjoyed at a safe distance throughout the city. Installations are included on our Downtown Art Tour map.
