"To encourage, foster, promote and nurture the arts

in the San Marcos community"

The hip, vibrant art scene of San Marcos is completely unique to this part of Texas.  Our town combines local artists from all walks of life, flavored with the spice of Texas State University and made smooth by the spring-fed river which flows through our city and ties us all together.

Thank you to our business sponsors, patrons, and partners:
