Tonight, at the DMA’s Horchow Auditorium, TACA (The Arts Community Alliance) is giving $1 million to 34 North Texas performing arts groups — for only the second time since TACA was founded in 1966.

For its arts grants, TACA raises funds via special events, including the Silver Cup Award luncheon, which was begun in 1979 by former Dallas mayor Annette Strauss (and which will be held again this March).

On Sunday, the Dallas Morning News ran a Q&A with TACA’s executive director, Rebecca Young, in which she talks about TACA possibly moving its offices to One Arts Plaza as well as the economic downturn’s effect on the arts and arts fundraising: “When times get tough, people get creative.”

  • “When tines get tough, people get creative.” Let’s hope so. I encourage all to consider novel ideas for the arts.
    The previous boom times was a period when there was a resistance to new ideas that I found stronger than any brick wall. Though no one wants to see these hard times, I do hope something good can come out of it – and openness to new ideas would be good for Dallas and Dallas arts.
