Artists and Organizations

Somerville possess a wealth of individual artists and vibrant organizations.  To support them we provide our LCC grant program which supports fellowships to artists and project grants to both artists and organizations.

Arts and Events

With the creation of a "producers series," we can maximize both staff and community resources, fostering our creative city.  Check out ArtBeat, ArtsUnion, Street Art, Jazz and Blues Fest.  

Cultural Economic Development

Since 2005 we've spearheaded cultural economic development through our work with ArtsUnion, ensuring that arts and culture are a priority in Union Square and throughout Somerville. 

The mission of the Somerville Arts Council is to cultivate and celebrate the creative expressions of the Somerville community. Through innovative collaborations and quality programming we work to make the arts an integral part of life reflective of our diverse city.
