Stockton Arts Commission Current Activities

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