Metro Nashville Arts Commission or “Metro Arts” is the office of Arts & Culture for the city of Nashville and Davidson County. We believe that arts drive a more vibrant and equitable community. We strive to ensure that all Nashvillians have access to a creative life through community investments, artist and organizational training, public art, and direct programs that involve residents in all forms of arts and culture.

Metro Nashville Arts Commission was established in 1978 by Metro Charter. We invite you to read our annual report, strategic plan, and cultural equity statement.
