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.
