Are you part of the arts community in Austin?

  • An art lover?
  • An artist and/or performer?
  • A fan of arts programming at the Austin Area Commission for the Arts?
  • An individual, family or business that knows the arts are good for our local economy?

Why not make it official?

As a member of the Austin Area Commission for the Arts, you can invest in our mission and also enjoy a few perks of membership (see column to left). When you break it down, it's $5 a month for an individual and $10 a month for a family. A handful of spare change each day.

Why do we offer membership?

  • To build a sense of community among our supporters
  • To build supporters’ sense of investment and stewardship in the organization
  • To create a framework for thanking our supporters
  • To attract new supporters.
  • To help document our public support which helps us maintain our non-profit tax exempt status 

What do membership gifts provide?

Support our programming. In 2016, that was 13,400 people served at the Historic Paramount Theatre, Austin ArtWorks Center and Austin ArtWorks Festival through live performances, adult and youth art education, gallery openings, jam sessions and more.
