WACO, Texas - Nov. 8, 2023 - PRLog -- Today, Art Center Waco (ACW) announces its 50th Anniversary celebration of being a creative force in the Waco community. For the past 50 years, ACW has been a leading arts organization for teaching, displaying, promoting and preserving vital, diverse visual arts that enrich and inspire the Waco community. ACW will celebrate this major milestone on Thursday, November 9, 2023, from 6pm – 9pm, at its new gallery Center (701 S. 8th Street, Waco, Texas 76706).

"In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, we invite our Guests to immerse themselves in our vibrant gallery atmosphere and explore the diverse talents of our artists and our exhibits."

Since 1973, ACW, a public, nonprofit institution in Waco, Texas, has diligently worked to enrich lives by deepening the understanding, exploration, and appreciation of the visual arts through engagement with programs, exhibitions, collections, and collaborations. ACW also works to be an innovative curator and presenter of premier exhibitions. Most recently, ACW presented the famed African American Hermès designer, Kermit Oliver, who resides in Waco, as well as presented well known artists and collaborators, Ty Nathan Clark and Vy Ngo, to name a few. ACW is devoted to presenting visual art in its new gallery Center as well as in its mobile gallery with the ultimate goal to inspire ideas, artistic contributions and conversations that are important and relevant to our world today. Therefore, in celebration of ACW's momentous occasion, the organization will present an exhibit showcasing its impact on the Waco community over the past 50 years.
