TFA Members

Thank you to Texans for the Arts' members for your involvement in our work!  Texans for the Arts' members, both organizations and individuals, amplify our collective voice across the state.  Their commitment and financial support enables our advocacy and lobbying work throughout the Texas legislative session and supports our advocacy training, Arts Advocacy Day, and legislative strategy planning between sessions.  Together, we are committed to building a stronger creative community across Texas.

This list reflects Texans for the Arts members from November 2015 - April 21, 2017.  Members in bold have renewed for the 2016-2017 year!  "Thank You!"

For information on how you or your organization can become a member of Texans for the Arts and join this impressive list of advocates, click here.

To help us spread the word about the good work we collectively undertake, we encourage you to post our logo on your web site, program book, or email signature!  Thank you!
