Promoting Public Art and History Throughout the Community

Monterey’s history and wide variety of public art make it a unique community. As we work to document our history and enhance our cultural arts program, the City has established a group of community members to help guide our community’s path.

What is the purpose of the Museums and Cultural Arts Commission?

The Museums and Cultural Arts Commission acts on matters affecting the operation of Colton Hall Museum and regarding the City’s art and history collections, including public art.

The seven members visit sites; attend workshops and meetings; analyze projects; and then recommend policies to the City Council. The Commission is also charged with promoting cultural arts in Monterey. Members oversee a cultural arts grant program that provides support every year to a wide variety of programs and events in the City.
