The Allied Arts Board was established in July 1979, to act in an advisory capacity to City Council in matters pertaining to the Arts and Cultural Affairs. As participants in the Cultural Masterplan Task Force of 1994, Allied Arts Board members played a significant role in the development of a cultural vision for the City of Huntington Beach.

The Allied Arts Board brings recognition to the Arts through a biennial arts awards program, which honors outstanding individuals, businesses and educators whose participation in and support of the arts achieves a standard of excellence and advances the value of the arts to the local and regional community. As advocates for the arts, the Board identifies the needs of arts organizations, encourages public support, and assists in fund development for the Huntington Beach Art Center.
