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)
