Stockton Arts Commission serves as the arts advocacy commission for the City. The Commission is a catalyst to support and strengthen community awareness, opportunities, and involvement in arts and culture.
Since 2003, the Stockton Arts Commission has awarded nearly $1,000,000 to support, stimulate, and strengthen the arts in Stockton. These grants help non-profit arts organizations, artists (including student artists), and art educators serve a diverse community.
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 with an arts director and a 15-member volunteer commission appointed by the Mayor and City Council.
