of Texas Arts and Culture'
Since 2001, Texas Foundation for the Arts has been showcasing Texas arts, culture and history through the creation of award-winning documentary films and series television programs. Our mission is to capture the uniqueness of Texas arts and culture. Our most recent episode of Houston Arts Television highlights:
Asia Society Texas Center. Famed architect Yoshio Taniguchi designed this exciting new multi-purpose venue, which features a 300-seat theatre, meeting rooms, and art exhibit/gallery space. This extraordinary new building puts Houston on the global stage while expanding the footprint of Houston's Museum District. Major funding provided by The Green Tree Foundation. Additional funding provided by John Bradshaw and Family, and a City's Initiative Grant from Mayor Annise Parker and Houston Arts Alliance.
