Arts & Culture

Carson City is a contemporary capital dedicated to promoting its evolving arts and culture community.  Through cultivating displays of creativity, education, and participation, Carson City helps build and promote its quality of life aspirations held by residents and visitors alike.  We believe a creative municipal identity provokes new and informative dialogues, recognizes and engages its inherent cultural and civic diversity, and articulates the positive social and economic impact of the arts.

Art and culture are integral parts of creating a community with an unparalleled quality of life.  In a very real sense, they are the glue that bonds our quality of life.

– Former Mayor Robert Crowell, State of the City Address 2018
