About the Arts in Goodyear
Goodyear hosts a series of special events to engage the public in the arts such as: Lakeside Music Fest; Chalk Art in the Park; Hot Coffee Art Lectures; the Library Lecture Series; and the Mayor’s Select Art Contest. With a commitment to furthering art education, the city partners with school districts to cultivate awareness and appreciation of the arts in classrooms. The Arts and Culture Commission 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.
