Cultural Arts Committee
The Cultural Arts Committee was established by the City Council in 1992 to promote knowledge, enjoyment and appreciation of the performing, literary and visual arts through community interaction with the arts, in order to strengthen the quality of life in Mission Viejo.
The Cultural Arts Committee assists with various functions relating to cultural arts in Mission Viejo. The Committee examines and measures the impact of present and future cultural events, programs, and facilities on the cultural needs of the City; developing mechanisms for encouraging cultural programs and projects within the City.
The Committee partners with local businesses to sponsor cultural programming within Mission Viejo. It encourages visual art classes, acting classes, music classes, performing arts groups, and art education programs. The Committee partners with local art agencies, colleges, universities, and the Pacific Symphony of Orange County.
The Committee develops coalitions for planning between the City’s Library & Cultural Services Department, the California Arts Council, Arts Orange County, the Heritage Committee, Saddleback Art League, Saddleback College, the Saddleback Valley School District, the Capistrano School District, and the Chamber of Commerce.
The Committee is composed of volunteer members who have special talents and education ranging from a basic appreciation for the arts to Masters level visual and performing arts degrees. Our members are dedicated to the beautification, enrichment, and cultural growth of the City of Mission Viejo.
The Committee meets the first Tuesday of each month (dark in July) at 6 pm at the Potocki Center for the Arts, located at 27301 La Paz Road, Mission Viejo.
The Committee seeks new members who are interested in serving the City of Mission Viejo cultural arts needs. If you are interested, please print the City of Mission Viejo Committee Interest Form and bring it to your first meeting.
