SANTA BARBARA COUNTY ARTS COMMISSION LOGOS
Formed in 1977, the Santa Barbara County
Arts Commission is a 15 member County Commission appointed
by the County Board of Supervisors, with three members from
each of the five supervisorial districts who make recommendations
to the Board on cultural arts policy. The Arts Commission serves
as an umbrella for county arts projects, assists communities
in raising funds for art programs and provides technical assistance
and coordination to arts organizations, artists and local government.
The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission is the regional cultural
development agency, a State and Local Partner of the California
Arts Council and manager of the County Percent
for Art Program. The Arts
Commission meets monthly on the second Wednesday of each month,
at 1:30 p.m., at locations throughout the county.
