With limitations to gathering due to COVID-19 we have focused on finding a balance between investing in artists, producing temporary public art installations through our Windowfront Exhibitions, supporting events through the Downtown Program Fund, programming ambient performance downtown, and more. We know there is an interest in gathering safely in person when the moment comes. Like you, we can not wait! We can not wait for dancing downtown under the stars at Fiesta Cultural, coming together in person for the Mayor’s Art Show, enjoying concerts in the parks, and so much more. When the time comes, we’ll be ready to celebrate community with you in as many ways as we can! Learn more about community programs.
