The purpose of the Arts & Culture Commission is to help enrich the lives of the people of the City of New Baltimore by making visual, literary, musical, culinary, and performing arts vital elements in the life of our community. The Commission works to support economic development, tourism, and add warmth, dignity, and beauty to spaces accessible to the public. The Commission also works to expand the experience and participation of citizens with the arts.
