The San Francisco Arts Commission is an agency of the City and County of San Francisco that consists of fifteen members appointed by the Mayor for four-year terms. Our work is overseen by the Director of Cultural Affairs.
Eleven members are practicing arts professionals, including two architects, a landscape architect, and representatives of the performing, visual, literary and media arts, and four lay members. The President of the Planning Commission, or a member of the Commission designated by the Presidents, serves ex officio. (Sec. 5.103)
To reach the Director of Cultural Affairs or individual commissioners directly, email Commission Secretary Traka Lopez-White or call (415) 252-2255.
