About the Round Rock Area Arts Council (Round Rock Arts): Made up of a grassroots group of dedicated and diverse individuals, the non-profit, 501 c 3 designated Round Rock Area Arts Council was formed in January 2009. The organization promotes art and performing venues in the city, facilitating regular gatherings with all art groups located in Round Rock. The goal of the organization is to encourage, support and enhance arts and cultural activities in the Round Rock area to transform the city into a thriving arts and culture scene. With stellar annual performance and art shows behind them, successful Chalk Walk events with crowds of over 17,000, monthly art exhibits at ArtSpace in downtown Round Rock, and grants awarded to Round Rock based art non-profits, art initiatives in Round Rock are increasingly supported by government, corporations, and artists alike. With two theater groups, two symphonies, a community choir, and talented artists whose works are displayed in various venues around town, this “Sports Capital of Texas” has hit a home run in encouraging the creative class.
In 2008, the Round Rock Arts organization chose the signature annual event name “Imagine” to symbolize how Round Rock could evolve into an arts and cultural center. During the past three years, an arts plan for the city has been developed with the goal of more access to visual and performing art venues in the area. Over the next three to five years, the city of Round Rock, together with Round Rock Arts and other city and community groups will help implement the plan. Imagine Round Rock as a thriving center of arts and culture. It can be done if we all work for it. Imagine is just the first step.
