County Arts Commission
The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission is a 15-member body appointed by the Board of Supervisors to act as coordinator and catalyst, bringing government, artists, and public together for the cultural benefit of all. The Arts Commission has several important functions, including: making recommendations for the Percent for the Arts program, which establishes public art throughout the county; serving on grant panels for the County Arts Enrichment awards; and helping to generate cultural arts policy for county constituents.
Arts Commission meetings are open to the public and Commissioners welcome members of the public to join meetings and share ideas during the public comment period at the beginning of each meeting.
Meeting Time: 2nd Wednesday of Each Month / Time: 1:30-3:00 PM / Location: Rotating Monthly between North and South County
