The Arts Commission was established by ordinance in 2000 by the Board of Trustees as an advisory body to the board for the administration of the Art in Public Places Program. Commission responsibilities include advising the Board of Trustees on what art projects to pursue, where to place such art, and with which artist to commission these projects.
The Community Canvas Program is a joint effort with Frederick Power and Light to create bright, active murals on Town of Frederick utility equipment. The Frederick Arts Commission is not accepting applications at this time.
The Town of Frederick’s Art in Public Places Program was established by ordinance in 1999 by the Board of Trustees to provide a means to fund the acquisition and maintenance of works of art for the town. The program is funded by 1% of all capital projects over $25,000 undertaken in Frederick and the monies are set aside in a reserved account.
