About the Georgetown Art Center

The Georgetown Art Center is the headquarters of the Texas Commission on the Arts designated Downtown Georgetown Cultural District and is managed by the City of Georgetown’s Arts and Culture Program. The GAC offers visual art exhibits, artist talks, and receptions all free to the public. Exhibits range from solo shows to group shows with a singular topic or theme. All exhibits are curated by an exhibit committee comprised of local artists from across the community. Calls for Exhibit Proposals are published annually to provide artists the opportunity to apply to exhibit at the GAC. Cordovan Art School at the Art Center offers daily classes for adults and children, as well as school break camps and summer camps. Georgetown Art Works also offers Workshops and Master Classes at the GAC throughout the year by experts in the field of fine arts for artists wishing to participate in continuing education opportunities.


The establishment of the Georgetown Art Center in 2013 was fostered by the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board to further the mission of the board. The board partnered with the non-profit, Georgetown Art Works, to operate the Art Center and work toward accomplishing the goals of the Arts and Culture Board. It was envisioned by the board that the Art Center would become the hub of arts and culture in Georgetown and initiate collaborative programming between the Art Center, the Downtown Cultural District’s arts and culture anchors, arts-based businesses, and local and regional artists.

In 2024 the Georgetown Arts and Culture Program began managing the Georgetown Art Center and now partners with the Cultural District anchor organizations, Cordovan Art School at the Art Center, Georgetown Art Works, local artists, regional artists, and arts educators to fulfill the mission and vision of the Arts and Culture Board’s Arts and Culture Program.



Georgetown’s Arts & Culture Program enhances the quality of life for the residents and visitors of Georgetown by promoting community engagement & cultural participation, fostering business development, and facilitating cultural tourism through public art programming & collaborative events.


Members of the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board believe a vibrant arts community and cultural offerings are good for the quality of life for residents, will attract visitors, and will assist Georgetown in becoming a nationally recognized arts destination by 2030.
