The Arts Directory is an online listing of contact information for art agencies that currently receive funding from the OCA, artists whose work is in the city’s public art collection, or those selected for the Commemorative Poster or Traffic Box Art projects.
The on-line listings are also available in a hard copy form (contact us for a copy).
What happened to the Artists’ Registry?
The Artists’ Registry was discontinued in 2012 as a result of the 2010 revision of the city’s Cultural Plan. When the Registry website was first created, it served as the online presence for many of local artists and arts agencies. As technology has evolved, most artists and agencies have an independent website and use other types of social media to market their work. Most of the profiles on the Registry were abandoned and out of date. Therefore the Commission of Cultural Affairs determined that the focus of the Artists’ Registry should shift to a directory format that would list the contact information for the artists and art organizations associated with the OCA.
Can I be listed in the Directory?
Currently the directory is limited to a specific set of artists and art agencies. This policy was adopted by the Commission in May 2011. The directory is a new service of the OCA, and is currently in a pilot phase; please check back for any changes in the policy.
