Commission Meetings

The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission typically meets at 2:00 p.m. on the second Monday of the month. Past and upcoming meeting materials are available online.


The cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento are proud to announce that two names have been selected for an art project that renames two important spots along the Sacramento waterfront. The project by British artist Joshua Sofaer is called "River Crossing: I want to communicate with you" and asked residents in summer to nominate people they would like to have commemorated. Over 650 nominations were received and a panel of judges selected two names: Isabel S. Naranjo for the new name of a dock in Old Sacramento and Etenesh Zeleke for a dock to be built in West Sacramento. Along with the selected two names for the docks, a total of 33 nominees, their photos, and the submitted stories will be available on the project website: As a final part to the art project, glowing lightboxes will spell the names of Naranjo and Zeleke in colorful maritime signals at their respective locations along the Sacramento river. The installation will occur in early 2020.
