The City of Hillsboro appreciates and values arts and culture. The City has an active history of supporting the arts as a way to enhance livability and to facilitate, coordinate, and celebrate the many creative assets in our community. Guiding documents—the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan and Hillsboro’s Cultural Arts Action Plan—reflect this support in the many initiatives and actions that point us toward ways to make Hillsboro a more welcoming and creative community. Housed in the Glenn and Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center, Parks and Recreation’s Cultural Arts Division operates the Walters’ programming and presentations, the City’s Public Art Program, a growing Arts and Culture Endowment, local arts and culture grant funding, and Community Arts outreach programming to support artists, arts and culture groups, and community members in a multitude of ways. Additionally, Cultural Arts provides administrative support for the Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council and its subcommittees.
