The Ferndale Arts Commission is charged with enhancing the community by advising on public art and community aesthetic enhancement.

The Arts Commission meets at 5 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month in the City Hall Main Conference Room, 2095 Main St.

The City accepts applications for boards and commissions year-round, not just when there is a vacancy. If you feel you have something to contribute, please fill out an application and send it to City Clerk Susan Duncan. You can find the application here.

Membership Requirements: Pursuant to FMC 2.30.040, Members shall be appointed upon the basis of demonstrated interest in, and knowledge and support of, the arts. At least four members of the Commission shall reside within the City limits at the time of their appointment and throughout their terms in office. Up to four members may be nonresidents who have resided in Whatcom County for at least one year.
