Allentown Arts Commission

We support the Arts & Artists in Allentown.

As the agency that champions the arts, we believe that a creative cultural environment is essential to the city’s well-being and we strive to integrate the arts into all aspects of city life. The Allentown Arts Commission supports the City by advocating for innovative arts policy, creating access for equitable participation in the arts, enlivening the urban environment, and fostering & enriching arts engagement for all residents.

To see current and past opportunities for artists, please use the menu in the left pane.
