The York County Arts Commission, a five-member panel that advises the Board of Supervisors on cultural arts, meets in October, January and July, as well as June, if necessary. The vacant spot can be filled by any resident of York County.
Members of the York County Arts Commission discuss which organizations they think should receive funding to the Board of Supervisors.
A nine-member Arts Commission, the Williamsburg Arts Commission gives one spot to a York County liaison and meets at least once every two months. That liaison helps coordinate arts funding between York County and Williamsburg.
