  • Arts Commission

    The Virginia Beach Arts and Humanities Commission promotes excellence in the arts and humanities by initiating and supporting programs, activities and policies that inspire, nurture and reflect the cultural diversity of the area.

  • The Virginia Beach Arts & Humanities Commission exists to assist the growth of exciting and diverse arts and humanities programs in the city of Virginia Beach. Additionally, the Commission is a marketing resource for local arts groups, sponsoring advertisements, providing more affordable marketing. The Commission also oversees numerous arts-related grants, which in turn result in direct revenue to the City through admissions taxes and venue rentals.

    This project is supported in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
