The Northbrook Arts Commission was formed by Village ordinance in 2002 with the purpose to encourage the development and enjoyment of the arts in the Village. The mission of the commission was to encourage greater cooperation between government organizations, not-for-profit corporations and individuals to promote the arts and assist in Village arts initiatives.
The partnerships with the Northbrook Public Library, Northbrook Park District, local businesses, and other organizations have been a critical part of the Arts Commission successes.
However, no organization can thrive by staying in the same place. The Arts Commission must stay aware of the needs of the community and the resources available to serve these needs.
