Since 2001, the Texas Medal of Arts Awards has celebrated 118 Texas leaders and luminaries who have achieved excellence through their creative talents, as well as those whose generosity has opened doors to artistic opportunity for Texans of all ages. As the signature fundraising event of the Texas Cultural Trust, the two-day affair is a star-studded celebration that spotlights the power of the arts to not only improve children’s education, stimulate the economy, improve health and well-being, but also to keep us connected, engaged, inspired, and to preserve the unique and proud culture of Texas.
