Over the past 36 months the Center has seen a 2000% + increase in visitors and become a mainstay of the growing cultural and performing arts scene in San Marcos. Local cultural and performing artists now regularly gather, create and/or showcase their works and talents and, in many cases are starting to receive income from it.
This past year, the San Marcos Arts Commission installed one of its ten mermaid sculptures in the Center’s garden and local access to free concerts and free or low-cost film showings grew tremendously as well. Several new creative and affordable workshops, including calligraphy, basket weaving, and book-binding were added this year. The Center also recently served as a kid-friendly haunted house during Main Street’s downtown trick-or-treating and as the main site for the San Marcos Cinema Club’s second annual Lost River Film Festival.
For more information please call (512) 392-2900 or stop by the Center at 222 W. San Antonio St., downtown San Marcos.
