Arts & Economic Prosperity 5

Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 provides evidence that the nonprofit arts and culture sector is a significant industry in the City of Grand Junction—one that generates $17.3 million in total economic activity. This spending—$11.3 million by nonprofit arts and cultural organizations and an additional $6 million in event-related spending by their audiences—supports 512 full-time equivalent jobs, generates $12.9 million in household income to local residents, and delivers $1.4 million in local and state government revenue. This economic impact study sends a strong signal that when we support the arts, we not only enhance our quality of life, but we also invest in the City of Grand Junction’s economic well-being.

$40,000 in grants are awarded!

Making Arts & Culture Part of Everyday Life in Grand Junction, Colorado!

The Grand Junction (Colorado) Commission on Arts and Culture is dedicated to developing the quantity, quality, and affordability of arts and culture for the citizens of the Grand Valley. Since 1990, the Commission on Arts and Culture has worked to support the Grand Valley's artistic resources and cultural activities. Our goal is to form strong, lasting, and dynamic connections with artists, arts organizations, businesses, government, and educational institutions throughout the City of Grand Junction.

In an effort to better serve local artists and the arts and cultural community, we hope you'll find this website easy to use and more informative than ever. We've integrated several features, such as live artist profiles, an Interactive Map of the City Art Collection, and an Online Artist's Registration which allows artists to submit information and photographs of their work to this site.

We've also included information about our annual Grant program, current Calls for Artists for the purchase of artwork for the City, and numerous reports such as the Economic Impact of the Arts in the Grand Valley and the Commission's annual State of the Arts reports.
