Welcome to the Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture – The Alliance!

The work of our agency can be stated in very simple and basic terms – we exist to be of service to the artists and arts organizations in Wichita Falls so that their work is made visible to every person in our community and to those who visit. As we continue to build The Alliance, this informational website will expand as well. We will ultimately provide local, regional and national information about the role that arts and culture play in building strong, creative communities.

The Alliance was formed in 2015 as a 501(c) 3 organization to respond to a citywide conversation about advancing the arts in Wichita Falls. We are proud to have a strong relationship with the City of Wichita Falls, and were recently designated as the official agency for distributing municipal arts funds. Support for the arts in the city is not a new idea however. In fact, for almost 100 years, citizens of Wichita Falls have shared their time, resources and passion for creating arts and cultural experiences. Many of the city’s arts organizations started as all volunteer groups and through partnerships, shared vision and generous donors, the arts community today is poised to reach broader audiences and approach new benchmarks for public engagement in the arts, cultural expression and heritage preservation. The Alliance is proud to join and support these efforts.

We hope that you will visit this site often and consider it your personal resource for connecting with the creative community in Wichita Falls.

Sincerely,

Margie Johnson Reese, MFA
Executive Director
