The Oregon Arts Commission was established in 1967 to foster the arts in Oregon and ensure their excellence. Nine Commissioners, appointed by the Governor, determine policies, establish long-range plans, and review applications to grants programs to determine funding levels.
In 1993, the Oregon Arts Commission became a division of the Oregon Business Development Department. All Commission business meetings are open to the public.
Funding for the Commission and its programs is provided by the state of Oregon, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, which believes a great nation deserves great art and with a cultural partner grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust.
