Art Alliance Austin
Through the production of The Austin Fine Arts Festival and other community events, the Art Alliance Austin is a non-profit organization that exists to enrich Central Texas’ cultural community and promote the visual arts. Since 1956, Art Alliance Austin(formerly the The Austin Fine Arts Alliance), has raised more than $2 million dollars for the Austin Museum of Art through its annual arts festival. Today, the organization has more than 160 members who volunteer their time to organize Art City Austin (formerly The Austin Fine Arts Festival). At the intersection of life and art, creativity and commerce, collaboration and imagination, Art Alliance Austin is a member-powered organization where they make art possible. They do it because art is a force and people need it to thrive. They produce really great art events to inspire citizens, catalyze artists to create, support the understanding and collection of visual art, and to hasten city-wide collaboration. They stimulate the local economy with collecting, travel, and money in the pockets of artists. They connect leaders and big organizations to make possible the profitable and the whimsical. With member events throughout the year, their efforts culminate each spring with an annual art fair: Art City Austin.
This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.
