The Conroe Art League (CAL) has been named a recipient of a 2021 Arts Create grant by the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA). The award of $8,500 is a two-year operational grant that requires CAL to match the funds.

“This marks the fourth year CAL has received funds from the TCA under the Arts Create program,” said Debra Riley, vice president of the Conroe Art League. “We first were awarded the grant in 2017. This grant program has enabled us to expand and improve our daily operations and encourage the enhancement of the visual arts in the Conroe, Texas, area.”
