Spotlight on the Arts is the catalyst for a well established arts, cultural and entertainment hub in the central Fairfax area
Spotlight on the Arts is sponsored by the City of Fairfax in cooperation with George Mason University and the business and arts community of Fairfax. “Spotlight” is considered one of Virginia’s foremost arts festivals. Over its 35 year history it has continued to be committed to supporting and encouraging awareness of cultural opportunities in the greater Fairfax community.
We, at Spotlight, are constantly inspired by the ways that art brings people together, creates a community and shines a light on issues that matter to all of us. We especially value our role in raising funds for scholarships that enable local arts students to attend George Mason University and realize their dreams in the Arts.
To enhance the awareness of arts, cultural and entertainment opportunities in the central Fairfax area, to promote visual and performing arts events; to support new and emerging artists and arts groups; and to provide arts-related scholarship opportunities for George Mason University students.
