About the San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council
Mission:
"To Enhance the arts and culture
of San Angelo and the Concho Valley."
 
In 1978,  a group of citizens interested in fostering the arts in San Angelo formed the Concho Valley Arts Council. It was incorporated that same year, under the leadership of its first president J. Willis Johnson. In 1985, the group changed its name to the San Angelo Cutural Affairs Council.   The group works closely with the core arts organizations, the City of San Angelo, the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, and the San Angelo Convention and Visitor's Bureau to promote the Arts in the Concho Valley. 

The Council has partnered with the City of San Angelo since 1989 to provide subgrants to local arts organizations with the City's HOT Revenue.  The Council also provides grants through funds provided by the Texas Commission on the Arts and through funds raised by the Council in annual fundraising events.

The San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council sponsors the longest running wine festival in Texas, the San Angelo Wine and Food Festival in its 31st year, and has provided quality musical performances to Concho Valley Residents for over 20 years through the Cactus Music Series.  The Council partners with Downtown San Angelo, Inc. to sponsor the monthly Art Walk and with local schools, Region XV Education Service Center, and the Tom Green County Library to provide educational programming. 
 
The council is managed by a board of directors serving staggered three-year terms. The directors represent a diverse cross-section of the Concho Valley bound together by a shared love of the arts.
