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.

City of Stockton Arts Commission has made a total of $40,000 available in arts grants to support, stimulate, and strengthen the arts in Stockton for the 2017 year. Please visit the Arts Grants Program for more information, guidelines, and application.

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.
