More great news for downtown Texarkana! Texarkana was awarded a big grant to help with the improvement to the courthouse area downtown and more. The Texas Commission on the Arts Board of Directors met last week and voted to award $56,000 to the Texarkana Arts and Historic District for a Texas Cultural Project grant.

This means there will be more money that will go toward the Courthouse Square Connections Project and the Arts and Historic District in downtown Texarkana. According to a press release this includes:

  •  Bending the Rules III: George Tobolowsky & Friends Public Art Exhibit, which will involve salvaged materials from the iconic Hotel Grim to engage local artists to work with renowned sculptor George Tobolowsky.
  • Over the Street Wayfinding Banner System, which will provide promotional opportunities north of the U.S. Federal Courthouse and Post Office at the gateway to the district to promote tourism.
  • Texarkana Museum System Arts and Historic District Visitor Center signage which will direct visitors from the U.S. Federal Courthouse and Post Office to the Arts and Historic District Visitor Center.

Downtown Texarkana is coming along and we just can't wait to show off the end results!
