About the Arts Commission
The Medford Arts Commission (MAC) is comprised of nine volunteer residents of Medford. Currently, the Medford Parks and Recreation Department provides a staff liaison whose responsibility is to facilitate meetings, support programs/projects and manage budgets.

The MAC general meeting is the second Monday of each month and study sessions are scheduled on the fourth Mondays of each month.  Schedule subject to change due to commission request.  Meetings may not take place if commissioners choose not to meet on any particular month, if there is a lack of agenda items to warrant a meeting, or if a quorum will not be present at a meeting.

There is scheduled time for the general public to present ideas or suggestions to the commission at each general meeting.  Please contact the liaison after 12 noon the day of a meeting to verify if a quorum will be in attendance; if not, the meeting may be canceled.

2021 Arts Commission Meeting Schedule

The Arts Commission meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 5:45 in the Medford Room of City Hall.  Study sessions are held the 4th Monday of each month at the same time and location. Schedule subject to change due to commission request.  ​

The MAC annual budget provides funds for maintenance of City owned art (over 100 pieces to date), acquisition of art, promotion of the MAC partnership program, and to educate and promote art in its various forms. 

The Partnership Opportunities Program allows the MAC to partner with 501c3 agencies, or their affiliates, to help offset funds for programs/projects which serve Medford residents.

Grant Report Form

The Public Art and Acquisition Policy is a guideline for the MAC to follow when selecting a site and/or artist for acquisitions over $5,000.
