Art Colony Association

Who We Are

The Art Colony Association provides unique art experiences and education for the greater Houston community by bringing diverse artists to urban Bayou City Art Festivals and supports local non-profit organizations. 

What We Do

Established in 1972, the Art Colony Association (ACA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to producing high quality art festivals and events to provide financial support to local non-profit organizations. Over the past 45 years, the Art Colony Association, producer of The Bayou City Art Festival Downtown in the fall and Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park in the spring, has raised millions of dollars to help support local nonprofit organizations. The Festivals are funded in part by grants from the City of Houston and through Houston Arts Alliance.
