Hill Country Council for the Arts is a resource for the arts, artists, arts organizations, and supporters of the arts in the Texas Hill Country.
HCCArts actively promotes the productions of our Partners: Boerne Performing Arts, Boerne Community Theatre, S.T.A.G.E. Krause House Theater and Boerne Independent School District’s Fine Arts Department. HCCArts also publishes Texas Hill Country events in print and social media.
Research shows that students who participate in the fine arts are more accomplished academically and lead more well-rounded and self-disciplined lives. HCCArts supports the Boerne Independent School District Fine Arts Department’s theater, music, dance and visual arts programs.
In 2011, the city of Boerne approved a Public Art Resolution in support of HCCArts’ Public Art Master Plan to bring public art to the gateways and cityscape of Boerne and Kendall County. “Father Gander,” a bronze sculpture by Larry Stevens in River Road Park, was the first piece. HCCArts worked with the city of Boerne and Texas Treasures Fine Art Gallery to purchase Erik Christianson’s life-size bronze sculpture, “Wild Bill Hickok”, now installed at Main Plaza.
Boerne's first Art al Fresco Public Art Exhibition opened in the fall of 2015. Visit this link and help pick "Boerne's Choice" by voting for your favorite sculpture. More information about the exhibition is available at www.artalfresco.org.
Painting, sculpture and photography are among the broad range of visual arts HCCArts supports as essential to the quality of community life. The Hill Country is blessed with flourishing art galleries and artists’ groups, including the Boerne Professional Artists and the Boerne Art League. Currently, HCCArts and the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm are co-sponsoring “Art and Conservation: Our Hidden Treasures,” a biennial collaboration between artists and landowners to promote conservation of Hill Country natural lands, water, wildlife and plants.
HCCArts supports Boerne’s Patrick Heath Public Library, which offers services from children’s reading programs and adult book discussion groups to computer classes, Spanish classes, speakers, art, live concerts and more with help from the Boerne Public Library Foundation.
