The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture seeks a new board member, and you would be perfect. Have you considered pursuing this post? What do you need to do to apply?

The Commission strives to enhance local arts and cultural opportunities. For example, the commission is currently working on an economic impact study of Grand Junction arts for the year 2016. You'll see members of the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture conducting surveys at local events.

At any given time, at least five people on the 11 member council must have backgrounds as either a pro or amateur in the areas of:

  • art criticism
  • art education
  • art history
  • choreography
  • folk and ethnic arts
  • literature
  • media arts
  • music
  • opera
  • painting
  • photography
  • urban design
  • sculpture
  • architecture
  • theater

Okay, so let's say you join the commission - what do you have to do? First off, to be on the Commission, you CANNOT be employed by any other arts or cultural organizations in the area. The Commission meets every fourth Wednesday of the month at 4 p.m. in the Parks Administration building at 1340 Gunnison Avenue. Terms last three years.
