Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council Executive Director Whitney Lee is inviting the community to provide feedback on how the organization can better serve the area. A free and brief survey has been created online and is available through the CTFAC Website.
“CTFAC serves a large area of eight counties in the Cross Timbers area,” Lee explained. “It would be easy to make ourselves crazy trying to offer an abundance of artistic opportunities in all those areas, but we would really like to hear from those communities to know what exactly they want or need from the arts council.”
Founded in 1980, the CTFAC is a non-profit fine arts presenter organization that covers an eight-county service area of Bosque, Comanche, Eastland, Erath, Hamilton, Hood, Palo Pinto and Somervell.
Each year CTFAC sponsors or co-sponsors a variety of events that include music, theater, dance and art exhibits, many of which serve rural schools in their service area. CTFAC also sponsors four free art galleries in the Stephenville area as part of their Art in Public Spaces campaign, done in partnership with the city of Stephenville.
“We’re finding that schools are really looking for resources to supplement their fine arts budget,” Lee said. “I would love to work with every campus in all eight counties – funding might be an issue. But if we can hear from the communities-at-large, we could form partnerships with organizations already in the area to create a bigger impact.”
A link to the survey is available through the Arts Council Website at www.ctfac.com.
