AN EXHIBITION IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND

Waco 52 is a celebration of outstanding artists who live and work in Waco and McLennan County. It captures the spirit of this place that inspires us all, and it is a commitment to be a community that invests in creative talent.

This spring, Creative Waco partnered with the Honorable Doc Anderson and the Honorable Kyle Kacal, State Representatives, to host a juried art exhibition featuring artwork by 52 outstanding artists from Waco and McLennan County.  Waco 52 was on display in the ground floor rotunda of the Texas State Capitol in Austin, Texas in May 2017.  The exhibition will come to Waco in July.

The 52 artworks have also been made into a set of quality playing cards that are available in selected Waco stores and online (see below).  The proceeds will support new arts initiatives in Waco and McLennan County.
