LA County Arts Commission


The arts provide a strong identity and shared sense of pride in our community. They are a bridge between a diverse population and group of people.

When you sponsor the Open Arts & Music Festival, Glendale Arts can continue to foster creativity, engage minds, and integrate the arts into the identity of Glendale.

With your help, Glendale Arts and the Alex Theatre can stay in the forefront of making the arts accessible to all members of the community and changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Our staff is small in number, which is why we rely on volunteers! There are “no small parts” at Glendale Arts: each volunteer plays a vital role in ensuring we can offer festival-goers a welcoming and enjoyable experience, and have fun while we’re doing it!

Even if you have no experience in the art world, this is an opportunity to delve into a creative landscape. Volunteers assist staff with a variety of tasks including event set-up / breakdown, production and promotion.
