The Institutional Partners Program allows arts organizations across the state to share information and promotion through electronic media. Our intent in creating the Institutional Partner Program was for other art institutions to be a continued part of our growth and to help “Paint the Dream” across Texas through events such as The Texas Medal of Arts Awards and our Young Masters Program. It is our hope that this collaboration will raise statewide cultural awareness of the work art institutions continue to do on behalf of Texans everywhere.

Become an Institutional Partner
The Institutional Partner program is a network of arts organizations from around the state created to share information and ideas. Your partnership helps connect the arts and culture in the communities of our great state. We would love for you to join our circle of friends.

The Institutional Partner program was created in 2005 to support the Texas Medal of Arts Awards. The Texas Medal of Arts Awards is a statewide celebration of Texans who have made powerful contributions to the arts in Texas and around the world through their creative achievement or philanthropic support. It brings together our Institutional Partners in recognition of Texas Legends and Rising Stars. We want arts organizations around the state to be involved in nominating, attending and broadcasting the excitement of the award winners.

Since its inception, it has grown into a communication network to exchange innovative ideas, creative solutions and technological advances. We want to share the best of Texas. We want your stories.
