Since it's the domain itself that you're concerned with, you'd have to get
the case fixed on both the primary server for .COM (a.root-servers.net),
since it has the delegation records for your domain, and on the master
server for the domain.
Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able get it changed on the .COM
server. It gets its data from the WHOIS database, which stores everything
in a single case.
If you wanted visible word boundaries in your domain, you should have used
hyphens, e.g. arts-maplewood.com. That's what they're for.
