Fairfax County Master Arts Plans

ArtsFairfax works with Fairfax County on Master Arts Plans to expand community access to and engagement in arts and culture. The Master Arts Plans provide a blueprint for cultural facilities and for public art throughout the County to reflect its diversity, consider existing facilities, and anticipate future growth. 


The Master Arts Plan for Facilities was accepted by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on July 11, 2023. The Master Arts Plan for Public Art is underway.

The Facilities Master Plan and the Public Art Master Plan are guided by a mix of County staff leadership and volunteer stakeholders organized to provide the County with thoughtful planning that will result in broader, more equitably accessible arts activities available to all County residents, employees, and visitors.  

Assuring the arts are a vital presence in everyone’s Fairfax County experience is a key goal of the Countywide Strategic Plan and One Fairfax.
