Beaverton Arts Commission

The Beaverton Arts Commission (BAC) has had two retreats this year and is focusing on three key areas: Public Art; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI); and a youth scholarship program. The BAC has approved four major public art works this year — all associated with the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts — all funded through the city’s 1% for Art Program. The DEI subcommittee will be focused on outreach — particularly to artists and organizations that represented historically marginalized people and groups.
