The City of Georgetown is celebrating the Month of the Arts this October with several events for our resident art lovers, including the inaugural Georgetown Autumn Art Stroll.
Autumn Art Stroll
Patrons are invited to come view and purchase art at various locations in the Downtown Georgetown Cultural District from 4-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21.
Locations include Grace Plaza, the splash pad at the Georgetown Art Center, local arts businesses, and arts and culture organizations. Visitors are also invited to participate in a public art project led by muralist J Muzacz at the Georgetown Art Center.
Participants in the event will also be able to view and provide feedback on the design for a capital improvement project in the cultural district between Founders Park and Grace Plaza. The City received a Texas Commission on the Arts grant for the project that will be considered by City Council at a future meeting.

Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon
The quarterly Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon returns at noon Oct. 14. Pack your lunch and join us at the Doug Smith Performance Center for a presentation by Ron Watson, Georgetown Palace Theatre executive director. His presentation “Anatomy of a Production” breaks down the details of what it takes to bring the large productions at the Palace to life; from play selection to casting, inspiration and design, and more. Updates from arts and culture stakeholders in the Downtown Georgetown Cultural District will follow Watson’s talk.
