The Mill Valley Arts Commission endeavors to enhance the cultural life of the community. It does this by promoting the visual and performing arts through events it sponsors. The Commission arranges monthly art exhibits at City Hall and the Community Center as part of the First Tuesday ArtWalk and publishes the monthly gallery guide. The Commission also sponsors Concerts in the Plaza, Comedy Night, and the Click Off events.

The Arts Commission manages visual and performing arts activities, events and programs, enjoyed in Mill Valley throughout the year. One of the very popular visual and performing arts events sponsored by the City through the Mill Valley Arts Commission includes the First Tuesday ArtWalk, with its publication of a monthly gallery guide and accompanying exhibitions at sites throughout Mill Valley, and Arts Commission curated monthly art exhibitions at City Hall and the Community Center. The Commission also hosts Concerts in the Plaza and the Comedy Night in the Plaza throughout the summer months and an annual photography competition, "The Click Off", each fall. Recent years have seen increased support of the Arts Commission, thanks to passionate support from the City Council, and enthusiastic advocacy by members of the arts community.
