The Reservoir Dogs star, who lives in Brooklyn, has been named among 15 new additions to the body, which provides recommendations to the city's Department of Cultural Affairs.
His appointment was announced in a statement from the department, which reads, "We're thrilled to announce our Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission! We look forward to working with these incredible cultural leaders to continue to bring the arts to New Yorkers in all five boroughs."
"The talented New Yorkers we've convened for this board represent a cross section of the most diverse and accomplished artists, administrators and advocates in this city," adds New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"I'm confident the wisdom of this Commission will guide the Department of Cultural Affairs toward meaningful and sustained engagement with the city's cultural communities to bring the arts to New Yorkers in all five boroughs."
Steve will offer advice on issues such as low-cost housing for artists and diversity programs in the arts.
