Stockton Arts Commission

The Stockton Arts Commission (SAC) serves as the arts advocacy commission for the City and a catalyst to support and strengthen community awareness, opportunities, and involvement in arts and culture. 

Arts Commission HistoryThe 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.
