Texas fine arts association

DEFINITION

Founded in 1911, the TFAA provided strong, organized support for the arts. One of their first successes was lobbying the legislature to appoint the Texas Commission for the Arts. Association members also promoted art education in the public schools, created an endowed chair in art at the University of Texas, and in 1927, organized the first exhibit of Texas artists outside of Texas. It was held in Nashville, Tennessee. The Texas Fine Arts Association also founded a series of local art leagues, many which, in turn, created local art schools and supported artist camps.
