Welcome to Patron of the Arts' 2020-2021 season! During these times, we are made even more aware of the important role the arts play in our lives as they help us nourish our hearts and minds.


This season, our goal is to share inspiring art directly from the heart of the performing and creative arts at UTRGV, our College of Fine Arts. We will offer free online exhibits and performances from our talented faculty, students, and guest artists from various creative disciplines.


You can expect online-only events through the end of 2020 in order to ensure your safety and that of our performers. We will communicate our plans for the second half of the season in 2021 with you after careful evaluation and implementation of safety protocols regarding the world pandemic.


We look forward to this, our most diverse season yet, and we hope you will follow us on social media and continue to be part of our community from wherever you are.
