The San Marcos Arts Commission is accepting applications for 2022-2023 Arts and Cultural Grants now through Sept. 12, 2022. Information and links to the online application are posted on the Arts Commission’s website atwww.smtxarts.com.
The City will host an in-person application workshop at the San Marcos Activity Center Multipurpose Room, 501 E. Hopkins, on Aug. 24 at 5:30 p.m. Potential applicants will receive an overview of the process and requirements for the grant.
The Arts and Cultural Grants Program are separated into two distinct grants, each supported by different City funds.

Nonprofit groups and individual artists are eligible for the program.
Examples of previously funded events include Summer in the Park, Indigenous Cultures Institute – Scared Springs Powwow, Eddie Durham Jazz Festival, Walker’s Gallery and the Pride Festival.
