Arts Council

Member Info

The Arts Council was established in 1985 with a mission to nurture, promote, and support high-quality cultural arts activities for the community.  The goals of the Arts Council are to:

  • Advocate for the arts, artists, and arts organizations of Mercer Island.
  • Stimulate community awareness and enjoyment of the fine arts.
  • Promote community education, awareness, and enjoyment of the arts.
  • Support performing, visual, and literary arts programs, projects, and events.

Eleven volunteer citizens comprise the board which is staffed by the Parks and Recreation Department. To find out more about these committees, contact the Chair (see below). Volunteers are needed!

Members are appointed to four-year terms by the Mayor, and confirmed by the City Council. A City Council member serves as liaison to the group.

The Arts Council members should be able to commit an estimated eight hours of time each month to board activities. Members should possess a broad perspective on the arts, must be willing to facilitate an event that may require a relatively large time commitment for a short period.
