Who We Are

The Vernon Arts Commission (VAC) is an official Town of Vernon Commission, created in 1976. The VAC is composed of volunteers: nine (9) Commissioners appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Town Council and an unlimited number of Associates appointed by the VAC. Vernon residents are encouraged to apply for both Commissioner and Associate Commissioner positions.

Friends of the Vernon Arts Commission (FVAC) is an adjunct group that financially supports and supplements the work of the VAC through annual membership contributions. FVAC members promote an appreciation for the arts in the Vernon community through participation in fund-raising events and by serving on VAC project committees.
