VERGE is dedicated to creating affordable opportunities and exposure for local artists to show and sell their work. We focus on creating a fun, social atmosphere that makes our shows appealing to a wide audience. We believe that artists and musicians need the support of a community to thrive, and similarly, a community needs art and music to flourish. We strive to create events that serve both of these purposes.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
