The program is funded by the Beaverton Arts and Culture Foundation.

The arts commission seeks to contribute to quality of life in Beaverton by presenting artistic and cultural events that celebrate community values and help connect residents to their artistic and cultural heritage.

“Regional artists and organizations help make Beaverton a vibrant city,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “I’d like to congratulate all the recipients for their hard work and thank them for bringing our community together through the arts.”

The commission presents annual events such as Beaverton Last Tuesday concert series held at The Round at Beaverton Central, the Beaverton Arts Mix! and Ten Tiny Dances. In addition, the commission leads public art projects, including Beaverton’s mural and sculpture program.
