Work from artists participating in the 2016 open studios is now on display at Beaverton City Hall. 12725 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton, OR 97005. This is open to the public from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday and the artwork will be on display until October 28th. Although the picture below might suggest otherwise the artwork is inside the building on the ground floor.
Beaverton Arts Program
The significance of art within the community was realized by a grassroots effort of local citizens, resulting in the establishment of the Beaverton Arts Commission by city ordinance in March of 1983. In order to sustain high quality art within the community, the Arts Program provides culturally enriching activities, programs and services throughout the year. For more information about public art programs, visit http://beavertonoregon.gov/1350/Programs.
Beaverton Arts Commission
The mission of the Beaverton Arts Commission (BAC) is to enhance, unite, and celebrate our diverse community through art. The BAC does this by advocating for the arts; supporting city arts events and programs; spreading the mission of the BAC at outside events and gatherings; advising staff and City Council on arts-related issues; and, volunteering their time to serve on the BAC board and other project sub-committees.
