In the wake of recent developments in our community and around the world, we have suspended our regular activities to ensure everyone’s safety, and to comply with State and CDC guidelines. We are creating virtual art experiences for our viewers in as many ways as we can.
However, we need your help to sustain us. We are asking those who can, to donate any amount possible, to ensure we can continue to bring art, education, healing arts and culture to our Bastrop and beyond. Will you join us? Here are three ways you can.
