"A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art." ~Paul Cezanne


Over the past 49 years, Art Colony Association, Inc., producer of Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park in the spring and Bayou City Art Festival Downtown in the fall, has raised over 3.6 million dollars in support of local nonprofit organizations.

Our Non-Profit Partners that are selected support the festival by providing volunteers, event promotion and creating unique kid’s activities. In turn, they receive a portion of the festival proceeds.

Our Children’s Creative Zone is a popular area that inspires young artists by featuring hands on art activities. Our non-profit partners create the art activity and then roll up their sleeves and help our little artists make masterpieces they can take home.

We are grateful for the support that our non-profit partners provide us. They help us further our mission and they enrich our community.
