U.S. Mayors Resolve to Support Arts & Culture

« Back

Jun 16, 2012

During the 80th annual U.S. Conference for Mayors (USCM), the mayors of the United States called for six arts and culture resolutions to be used throughout the year to demonstrate that mayors' support arts and culture. The resolutions include:

  • urge mayors to invest in nonprofit arts organizations
  • encourage mayors and local school districts to supports arts education programs
  • call for mayors to support the U.S. National Travel and Tourism Strategy
  • urge local businesses and arts organizations to collaborate
  • reaffirm mayors' support for the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services


USCM is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are 1,309 such cities in the U.S. today. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
