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.
All Commission meetings are open to the public and news media and (unless otherwise noted) are held at the S.C. Arts Commission offices, located at 1026 Sumter St., Suite 200, Columbia, S.C. Access via Zoom (TM) is usually available by request.
Members of the general public or media who wish to access these public proceedings are requested, but not required, to email their intentions to Kevin Flarisee (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance of the meeting (ideally by the day before). This is required for Zoom access to meetings.
