Mid-America Arts Alliance
Texas Commission on the Arts pays an annual subscription fee to enable Texas to participate in Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA) programs. Arts and cultural organizations in Texas reap the benefit through a variety of discounted programs listed below:
- Regional Touring Program supports performing artist fees for presenters of all sizes and types. Presentations of any professional performing artist or company will be considered, as long as the artist comes from outside the presenter's state. Special incentives are provided for engaging performing artists from Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma. The M-AAA Registry contains information about select performing artists and companies. It offers a range of artists from the Mid-America region, making it a useful tool for presenters. Although the M-AAA recommends artists represented in the catalog, presenters have the option of seeking support for any professional performing artist.
- ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance, organizes and circulates exhibitions for a broad range of institutions: art museums, historical societies, art centers, libraries, and many other traditional and non-traditional exhibitors. ExhibitsUSA has a wide range of exhibitions, varying in subject, size, media, security requirements, and rental fee. Texas exhibitors receive a 25% discount on all ExhibitsUSA exhibitions. Shipping subsidies are available for many organizations. For information contact:
M-AAA also provides technical assistance and professional development opportunities to artists and arts organizations, including the annual Midwest Arts Conference. For information contact:
