About RRA

The goal of the Round Rock Area Arts Council, dba as Round Rock Arts, is to encourage, support and enhance arts and cultural activities in the Round Rock area and to transform the city into a thriving arts and culture scene. We  want to involve you with the arts and culture scene in Round Rock! In our ninth year, we promote the arts through Imagine, a Night of Art & Performance in March, our Fish Fry fundraiser in June and Chalk Walk, Art & Music Festival in October. With monthly art exhibits at ArtSpace, our gallery in downtown Round Rock, as well as exhibits we manage throughout the city, art initiatives in Round Rock are increasingly supported by government, corporations, and artists alike. With two theater groups, two symphonies, a community choir, multiple performance and cultural organizations as well as 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.

“We have a lot of culture and history in Round Rock but it’s not as evident as it could and should be,” said Round Rock Arts’ past President and Round Rock City Councilwoman, Kris Whitfield.  “Our sights are on promoting creative arts in the community to help strengthen that sense of place in Round Rock. And as a noteworthy auxiliary benefit, a strong arts component in the community helps us attract future business and investment.”

Made up of a grassroots group of dedicated and diverse individuals, the non-profit, 501 c 3 designated, Round Rock Arts was formed in January 2009.  Visit us! Add your talents by volunteering! DONATE!
