Stockton Arts Commission Current Activities
The Stockton Arts Commission serves as the arts advocacy commission for the City – a catalyst to support and strengthen community awareness, opportunities, and involvement in arts and culture. The Commission was founded by Marian Jacobs and a group of local arts supporters in the mid-1970s.
Today, the Commission operates within the City's Community Services Department. Business is conducted by the arts director and a 16-member volunteer commission appointed by the Mayor and City Council.
