Program:Trevor Wilson, City Of Stockton Public Arts Coordinator
Introduced By:President Kevin introduced our speaker Trevor Wilson, who further introduced Ms. Avie Delavos, Chair of the Stockton Arts Commission
Trevor reported that he started his job for the Community Services Department just before this COVID pandemic crisis started. So, it has been challenging to make progress over the last two years. He is the staff for the Stockton Arts Commission and Ms. Delavos has been leading this commission as Chair. Ms. Delavos thanked Trevor for his support and hard work. She then proceeded through a series of PP slides summarizing the Arts Commission’s goals and objectives using the 2019 annual report as a guide due to COVID delays. She mentioned the youth conference and their performance arts efforts, as well as the ‘collide’ arts exhibit planned as part of the Stockton Flavor Fest planned this spring. The Commission’s goal is to promote the growth in arts and culture in Stockton. They need volunteers to serve on the Commission as well as helping with their events. Ms. Delavos told the story of her daughter (a performing artist) and how she got burned out commuting to the Bay for studio time. Her daughter now lives in LA. Money is available for art grants (100’s of thousands of dollars). Ralph Grisham, Representing the Club’s COG team explained how they had many ideas for public art throughout Stockton and will fill Trevor and Ms. Delavos in on their ideas. Orlando Milina of Tuleburg Press said that there are now several studios in Stockton for recording artist, and he will let the Art Commission know of his sources. Music in the park is not part of the Art Commission’s work but provides a venue for them to introduce youth to the performing arts.
