Anacortes Arts Commission
Anacortes Arts Commission includes an e x p a n d i n g, diverse public art collection in locations ranging from public buildings, to waterfront settings, to parks and forestlands. Thriving arts organizations offer year-round programming in theater, music, visual and literary arts.
Fidalgo Island has a large public art collection that includes outdoor sculpture, a variety of murals, and public buildings with art collections by a wide range of well-known regional artists – as well as a number of Monuments and Memorials. Skagit County and Fidalgo Island were the home of a number of artists who developed a unique northwest style of art established in the early part of the 20th century, and artists who have subsequently continued to define the uniqueness of our area through their painting, sculpture, photography and other mediums.
We love the arts in Anacortes
MISSION STATEMENT: The Anacortes Arts Commission supports excellence, vitality, diversity, and accessibility of the arts as essential to the quality of life for all Fidalgo and Guemes Island residents by fostering a community cultural vision through the acquisition, placement and maintenance of public art and by promoting participation, innovation and partnership in all the performing, visual literary arts.
