On September 6th, the Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor was approved by the Texas Commission on the Arts for designation as an official Texas Cultural District. This designation will allow artists, arts organizations, and businesses along Fredericksburg Road and N Flores to access new resources for community development—things like better signage, public art projects, façade restorations, and a district-wide marketing campaign.
The Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor received great feedback from the reviewers at the Texas Commission on the Arts, who commended its “quality arts attractions and amenities,” “historic assets,” and thriving businesses. They also appreciated the name “Old Spanish Trail” for its connection to the history of our community and its potential for a national marketing campaign to promote the district.
Dr. Gary Gibbs, Executive Director with the Texas Commission on the Arts will officiate the Designation Ceremony and Press Conference on Friday, October 26, 2018, at 10am. We would love for you to attend as an important member of the district.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am to see the good things happening in our community. Let’s keep the momentum moving forward. Thank you again for your hard work and support!
