Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs 

The Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs acts as an advisory board to Denver Arts & Venues' cultural programs department. The Commission is comprised of dynamic and accomplished Denver leaders in the areas of the arts, business and education, all of whom are appointed by the Mayor. The Commissioners are strong advocates for arts and culture, and are committed to the mission and goals of Cultural Programs and Denver Arts & Venues. Meetings of the Commission are open to the public. They are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 4:00 p.m. Call 720-865-4306 for details.

The Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs was established in 1991 to support the Mayor and serve as four major roles for Denver Arts & Venues: oversee the 1% for public art program, serve as trustees of Denver’s cultural plan, IMAGINE 2020, advise on arts and cultural issues, and act as ambassadors to the community.
