Meetings & Agendas

Updated September 22, 2022: The City of Boulder has updated their guidance regarding board and commission meetings to occur. Under the new orders, the Arts Commission has the authority to schedule and hold hybrid in person / video meetings for commission members and staff.   

Public observation and comment will be permitted for the meetings.  Members of the public are invited to join remotely by video.  (There are plans to incorporate in person public participation in the near future.)  To join the video conference, members of the community will be asked to make a request by email to rsvp@bouldercolorado.gov no later than the Tuesday preceding each meeting.  The Boulder Arts Commission meets at 6 p.m. monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted.

Please keep an eye on our newsletter, and our website, for updates on the Arts Commission schedule and meeting documents.  Recordings of Boulder Arts Commission meetings can be found on the City of Boulder’s website and on YouTube, and minutes of past meetings can be found at the Central Records website.
