Celebrating our New District

On October 10th, Arts!Longview recieved its Cultural District designation by the Texas Commission on the Arts. 

“Our mission is simple,” Arts!Longview Board President Nancy Murray stated, “We are here to spark a love of the arts, history and culture to enhance our community. That’s our goal.” Take a peak at the event in KLTV's video that aired October 10th.
