For over 30 years, Rio Grande Valley residents and visitors have enjoyed excellent artistic programs made possible through Patron of the Arts. Our commitment to providing affordable access to musical and visual arts experiences has never been stronger.
This is an extremely exciting year for the arts in the Rio Grande Valley. The newly created College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley will span the campuses in Brownsville and Edinburg. This past April, we also celebrated the grand opening of our fabulous new Performing Arts Complex on the Edinburg campus.
Another piece of exciting news that we wish to share is that the Edinburg campus has now joined Patron of the Arts. Your paid membership will continue to provide the same affordable prices for season passes as well as individual tickets and will grant you access to concerts in both Brownsville and Edinburg. Your membership will get you the best deal in TWO towns with fantastic guest artists, faculty artists and student ensembles.
Admission to exhibits in the Art Gallery at Rusteberg Hall is still part of the Patron of the Arts membership and Brownsville concerts will continue to be held in the beautiful TSC Arts Center. Edinburg concerts will be held at the Performing Arts Complex while art exhibits will be presented in the Charles & Dorothy Clark Gallery and the Visual Arts Gallery in Edinburg.
On behalf of the UTRGV College of Fine Arts administration, faculty and staff, we are excited and proud to welcome you to the new UTRGV Patron of the Arts community. Please join Patron of the Arts today and encourage your friends and family to also be part of this long-standing tradition.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at our events.
