The newly formed Airway Heights Arts Commission, facilitated by the City of Airway Heights Planning Department, is working to bring the display of public art into City facilities. Prompted by the art case in City Hall, the Planning Department presented Parks & Recreation staff the opportunity to display approved public art at the Recreation Center. Parks & Recreation Staff quickly worked to identify dedicated space for arts displays at the Rec Center.
Visitors will soon be able to enjoy the work of local artists in the Recreation Center lounge. The first display of art belongs to the winner of the annual Arbor Day Poster Contest, 5th grader Jocelyn Smeby from Sunset Elementary.
In addition to art in public facilities, the Arts Commission is working on bringing vibrant, and locally inspired art to various locations throughout the City. The first project facilitated through the Arts Commission is the wrapping of the utility box located on the corner of Lawson Street and Highway 2 with art designed to celebrate the history and makeup of the Community.
The City of Airway Heights Arts Commission meets the second Monday of every month at 2:00 pm in the board room at City Hall located at 13120 W. 13th Ave (Virtual Attendance Option Available). To learn more about the Airway Heights Arts Commission, please visit cawh.org/arts-commission .
