Mission

The East Aldine Arts Council was created in 2020 to increase the visibility of public art works throughout the East Aldine District and to engage residents in a conversation about the power that art can have and the pride it can invoke in the community.

Our mission is simple: To promote and advocate for the visual arts throughout the East Aldine community.

In support of the mission, the Council has four objectives to help enrich our beloved East Aldine.

  • Foster creativity and expression via public art installations and exhibits.
  • Actively engage with the community and work with local partners to ignite civic pride via visual art.
  • Make East Aldine an art-centric destination with unique and compelling art works on display.
  • Seek out community & local artists and provide a platform for their work.

With district funding, Up Art Studio artists recently created the first two mini-murals in East Aldine on metal utility cabinets on Aldine-Westfield Road at Greens Road and at Little York Road.

Take photos of the mini-murals, post them and tag us! @AldineDistrict on Twitter, #eastaldinedistrict on Instagram and on Facebook at East Aldine District.
