About the Arts in Goodyear

The Arts and Culture Division was established in 2006 by the Goodyear City Council to create a distinct sense of place and cultural destination by integrating art into public spaces. Goodyear’s public art program promotes arts and cultural excellence in coordination with the private sector and other governmental agencies to increase awareness of the contributions of arts and culture to our economy and quality of life.

The Goodyear Arts & Culture Commission provides leadership in developing a community identity through the arts that embraces, celebrates and unites all of our diverse histories, beliefs, cultures, and aspirations.
