Stockton Arts Commission Current Activities
The Stockton Arts Commission serves as the arts advocacy commission for the City – a catalyst to support and strengthen the community by increasing 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.

The Stockton Arts Commission announces its annual grant cycle for projects to be completed from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. These grants stimulate and strengthen the arts in Stockton and increase the capacity of arts organizations, artists, and art educators to serve a diverse community.
