Capital Campaign

The Port Aransas Art Center completed construction on a new building and opened it to the public in late summer, 2017. We deeply appreciate the many contributors who helped us acquire the land (2006 to 2016). It took ten years, but happily those donations added up and the land was acquired (for a list of donors to date, follow this link).

For our capital campaign case for support, which outlines our history and accomplishments as well as remaining fundraising to be done, please follow this link: Port Aransas Art Center | Building Fund | Case for Support

Donations to the Building Fund are welcome and will help us retire all remaining debt.

We would be pleased to visit with you in person to show you the new building and to share our current naming opportunities. Your financial support via check, through your donor advised fund, stock or by via secure online donation are all welcome and will be greatly appreciated. Pledges may also be made over time, if desired.

Naming opportunities in the new facility include the following:

  • Main Building | $500,000
  • Port Aransas Art Center Campus | $300,000
