Art Group (Art) was a sub-bureau of COMPNOR's Coalition for Progress responsible for reporting on the suitability of artistic expression within the Empire. It was noted for its austere tenets and inflexible criteria.[1]


In Art Group's early years following the Clone Wars, when an Art agent had a scathing report on a piece of art, a distinctive red holo-label was affixed to the work in question. Among the underground, this act was referred to as "drawing a scarlet," and was viewed as a laudable achievement among counterculture artists chafing under Imperial restrictions.[1]

Art Group was eventually given the authority to call in ISB agents when artistic violations were egregious. The ISB was known for its ability to make troublesome artists disappear.[1]
