It is well-documented that the visual, musical and performing arts are essential elements of any vibrant community. The arts contribute to the enrichment of our individual and communal lives in so many ways. In fact, a city without the arts is literally a city without a heart. Every city needs an identity or “brand” to distinguish itself while attracting new families and businesses. The City of Vision has recognized the role of the arts in its long-term strategic planning. This is why Rio Rancho created a special commission to oversee and lead the city toward that goal.
The members of the City of Rio Rancho Arts Commission are united by this goal. They each desire to contribute in a meaningful way to the quality of life for all residents of Rio Rancho. In coordination with the schools and colleges, local businesses and arts organizations, the commissioners are actively bringing high quality arts to our city.
