The South Carolina Arts Commission

South Carolina Arts Commission Board

The governing body of the Commission is composed of nine volunteer citizens appointed at large for three year terms by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate for the purpose of guiding the development of the arts in the state. Commissioners are residents of South Carolina who are selected for their practice of, participation in, or support of the creative and interpretive arts. The Commissioners attend grant panel meetings and meet regularly to take action on funding and formulating policy for the Arts Commission.
