Capital Campaign

The Port Aransas Art Center recently construction on its new building and opening it to the public in the second half of 2017. We deeply appreciate the many contributors who helped us acquire the land (2006 to 2016), and those who are helping us finish our new building construction campaign (for a list of donors to date, follow this link).
