integrating visual and performing arts throughout

the city. While the city will continue to support and

promote traditional venues such as museums, galleries

and performance centers, it will also strive to make art

more accessible to residents through non-traditional

venues such as parks, squares, greenways and natural

areas to enhance residents’ quality of life.
