In June 2021, Windsor’s Town Board adopted a public arts ordinance, paving the way for the creation of a new community Arts Commission. The Windsor Arts Commission consists of seven members who oversee Windsor’s Community Art Program including the selection of artists, artwork and art installation and placement in Windsor.
