NOW IS THE TIME
to leverage the arts to drive regional, cultural and economic development for our downtown community.
In partnership with the City of Lufkin, Angelina Arts Alliance has kicked-off a comprehensive assessment of cultural and physical assets to determine downtown opportunities for further cultural development. A dynamic group of over 40 community leaders, downtown stakeholders and arts supporters have stepped forward to help Angelina Arts and its consultants to embark on the journey to achieve State designated cultural district for downtown Lufkin.

Watch for more information and progress as we envision Lufkin being the epicenter of arts and culture in Deep East Texas.
The project is being funded by a grant from the T.L.L Temple Foundation with the end goal to put Lufkin on the map of State designated cultural districts — attracting business leaders, renowned artists and leading hoteliers.
