Arts Commission History

The Commission was founded by Marian Jacobs and a group of local arts supporters in the mid-1970's. Today, the Commission operates within the City's Community Services Department. Business is conducted by the arts director and a 15-member volunteer commission appointed by the Mayor and City Council.
