The Ellensburg Arts Commission was established in 1980 for the purpose of appropriately advising the city council and staff regarding the furtherance of performing and/or visual arts within the city for the benefit of both the local public and visitors and tourists whom the city desires to attract.

The seven-member Arts Commission is to

  • Consult with and recommend to the city council on matters pertaining to the performing, literary, and visual arts
  • Provide leadership and advocacy for the arts
  • Formulate and recommend a short- and long-term strategic plans for the arts
  • Manage, build and maintain the city's public art collection

In November 2019, the City Council approved the Ellensburg Arts Commission Arts Policy. It provides the foundation for the mission, vision, core values and focus areas for the work of the Commission (EAC) in addition to Chapter 1.33 of the City of Ellensburg Code.
