San Antonio Arts Commission

The San Antonio Arts Commission is comprised of 15 members, all appointed by the Mayor and City Council to make recommendations related to arts funding and public art for the City of San Antonio. The Department of Arts & Culture works directly with the San Antonio Arts Commission.

In an effort to enhance the arts and culture in our city and establish best practices, the San Antonio Arts Commission was created on April 2, 2015 uniting the former Cultural Arts Board and the former Public Art Board. The San Antonio Arts Commission includes several volunteer citizen subcommittees related to specific creative areas.
