MESQUITE ARTS COUNCIL

ABOUT US

Founded in 1981, the Mesquite Arts Council initially was a part
of the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce Cultural Committee.
 Official recognition by the State of Texas occurred in 1984 as a
result of the development of by-laws, articles of incorporation

and tax exempt status.
With the successful organization of the Mesquite arts
community in 1985, the Arts Council became the official arts
agency for the City of Mesquite.  Delivery of the Local Cultural
Grants Program in 1993 by the Arts Council, to the arts
nonprofit community further solidified a commitment to arts

services and continues to date.
Currently, and in addition to the previously listed arts
administration elements, the Mesquite Arts Council provides
administrative elements, the Mesquite Arts Council provides
administrative support and policy making toward the
operation of the Mesquite Arts Center, Public Art Program and
strategic planning (both facility and programming) for the City

of Mesquite.
