ARTS & CULTURE GUIDE

ARTS.GEORGETOWN.ORG • VISITGEORGETOWN.COM


WELCOME Dear Friends, The U.S. Census Bureau recently announced that Georgetown is the fastest-growing city in the United States among those with populations over 50,000. This rapid growth has positively affected our arts and culture offerings especially on the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas and the surrounding area. Artists and musicians, actors and organizers are moving to town and bringing new talent, perspectives, and inspiration to what was already a vibrant home for arts and culture. Please accept my invitation to visit the blossoming Georgetown Cultural District and see for yourself. Whether you are a resident or a visitor to Georgetown, there are opportunities to be found year-round in music, art, theatre, history, and culture, and this Georgetown Arts & Culture Guide is the place to start your search. What are the high points that no one should miss? To start with, the Georgetown Art Center, the Georgetown Palace Theatre, Grace Heritage Center, The Williamson Museum, and the Georgetown Public Library are all nestled around the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas. The Square also is home to shops and galleries, wineries and restaurants with live music and delicious food. A visit to the Square to watch a play or to take in an art exhibit or a historical exhibit is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. Expanding out from the Square, in the summertime we have a classical music festival called Georgetown Festival of the Arts, and in the fall and spring the Georgetown Symphony Society brings us a symphony season. Southwestern University, a liberal arts university, offers outstanding concerts, plays, and art exhibits open to the public. Despite our explosive growth, all of these options are either inside the Cultural District or just a five minute drive from it. Visit the pages of this Arts & Culture Guide to see how we are growing, and please search out the many avenues for inspiration in our fast-growing Cultural District.

GEORGETOWN CULTURAL DISTRICT

AN INSPIRED DESTINATION FOR ARTS & CULTURE The comment heard most often after last year’s issue of the Georgetown Arts & Culture Guide was published was an emphatic, “There is way more going on in Georgetown than I thought!” The wide-ranging arts opportunities in town are inspiring. The Texas Commission on the Arts agrees that Georgetown has a lot going on, so they designated a 40-block area surrounding the Square as a state Cultural District—a special arts zone. Georgetown’s Cultural District is one of only 28 cultural districts across the entire state, lending a level of distinction and recognition to the community. Georgetown is also distinctive in that it is the fastest growing city over 50,000 people in the entire country. The cultural arts sector is taking off as a result of that population growth. Arts and culture organizers bring the architecture and history of the area to life, curate thought-provoking art exhibits and events, create magical theatre experiences, and organize concerts that inspire.

Georgetown’s Cultural District overlaps the historic downtown Square and its many wonderful restaurants, wineries, galleries, and much more. It is the focal point for dedicated arts and culture organizers: the people who are the foundation of the vibrant arts community. The Square—the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas—is at the center, lined with antique shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions. There are new and exciting things to do every year. There may be way more going on in Georgetown and the Cultural District than you realized, too.

INSPIRED THEATRE Georgetown enjoys wonderful live theatre performances in the local Georgetown Palace Theatre as well as in the two performing arts theatres at Southwestern University’s Sarofim School of Fine Arts. Between the two, there are musicals, dramas, comedies, and more throughout the year. Southwestern University’s Sarofim School of Fine Arts has a Theatre Department that nurtures students’ creativity in the classroom and brings it alive on the stage. From family-friendly to funny to provocative to original dramatic productions, the talented faculty, students, and guest artists who star in Southwestern’s theatre productions are a gift to Georgetown residents and visitors. The Georgetown Palace Theatre offers live theatre productions year-round. The quality of the acting, directing, and production earns impressive reviews. In addition to the main stage lineup, the Palace has put together fun-filled musical performances and non-musical plays that are sure to entertain at the Palace Playhouse, right across the street from the historic theatre. Between the Sarofim School of Fine Arts offerings at Southwestern University and the Palace Theatre productions, theatre in Georgetown is thriving, with high quality options for all tastes.

GEORGETOWN CULTURAL DISTRICT INSPIRED MUSIC People with a passion for chamber concerts, symphony performances, piano recitals, jazz on the downtown Square, folk in a local winery, ‘40s tunes in a restaurant, or rock ‘n’ roll in a bar will find something that suits them in Georgetown. Opportunities to experience classical music are surprisingly frequent, and many performances feature world class performers. These include an annual Van Cliburn recital, featuring a finalist in the International Piano Competition, in addition to a season of six concerts spanning September to May held in the Klett Center for the Performing Arts. Southwestern University offers the Sarofim Series of Music bringing in some of today’s most sought after musicians. In addition there are multiple guest artist recitals, concerts, and faculty recitals, as well as performances by student groups: wind ensemble and orchestra, opera theatre, jazz ensemble, and chorale. The Georgetown Festival of the Arts organizes a Classic Chamber Concert series and also creates a wonderful week of concerts, lectures, a film showing, and more each year, including a free concert in San Gabriel Park that is followed by fireworks. Every month, there is a free concert at the Georgetown Public Library: Live Music at the Library is at 2 pm the third Sunday of each month and ranges from jazz bands to classical soloists and ensembles to folk, bluegrass, and world music. Many of the city’s wineries, restaurants and bars feature live music, as well. To find these events, visit the City’s Entertainment Calendar at visitgeorgetown.com. IN S P I RE D A RT Georgetown has public art around the Square, in parks, on Southwestern University’s campus, at the public library, and elsewhere. There are several local art galleries, and visitors and residents find changing art exhibited in many restaurants and businesses, as well.

ARTIS TS DIRECTORY Local artists participate in plein air painting events, enter their work in competitions, participate in exhibits near and far, attend or give artist talks and workshops at the Georgetown Art Center and elsewhere, and most importantly of all, they spend many hours making art in their studios and homes. The City of Georgetown hosts an Artists Directory online to help the public and local artists connect. Visit arts.georgetown.org/resources. The Georgetown Public Library has an exhibit area where artists show their work year-round, and local art organizations hold meetings and workshops in the library’s meeting rooms. The library also hosts two state-level exhibits each year: the annual Texas Society of Sculptors summer show, and the Art Hop competition, which is held in partnership with the Georgetown Art Center. The City of Georgetown sponsors a rotating Sculpture Tour in close collaboration with the Texas Society of Sculptors. The Sculpture Tour features works of art in three locations: Main Street between Seventh and Eighth streets, Georgetown Public Library, and Georgetown Recreation Center. INS PIRE D HIS TORY AND CU LTU RE Georgetown’s history and architecture are fascinating, and there are many ways to enjoy them. The rich story of this part of Central Texas is told by The Williamson Museum, and a visit to the museum begins outside on the sidewalk with the life-sized bronze of Robert McAlpin Williamson, or “Three Legged Willie,” for whom the county was named. History lovers and families will enjoy a stop at the museum to see insightful exhibits with artifacts and information for a fascinating glimpse into the local past. The museum sponsors a rich mix of events and lectures, as well.

The Sarofim Art Gallery at Southwestern University features exhibits by professional and student artists. The gallery is always free and open to the public, with opening receptions and sometimes artist talks as well.

The Georgetown Heritage Society operates the Grace Heritage Center, and preserves and promotes Georgetown’s heritage. The society hosts events such as the Holiday Home Tour in historic Georgetown and The Amazing Heritage Quest, a fun event for families and friends.

The Georgetown Art Center is just off the Square, the result of a renovation that transformed Georgetown’s 124-year-old Firehouse Number 1 into the award-winning Georgetown Art Center. The art center offers residents and visitors year-round curated exhibits with a variety of mediums, artists, and styles. Each year, more than 100 different artists and more than 200 pieces are exhibited at the center, which welcomes up to 3,000 visitors each month. Every exhibit includes an artist reception that is free to the public.

In addition to visiting the Williamson Museum and the Grace Heritage Center, residents and visitors enjoy the Downtown Walking Tour or Historic Homes Driving Tour, or seeing Historic Marker Sites and National Register Historic Districts in town. The architecture around the Square is fascinating, and the Georgetown Palace Theatre, an integral part of the downtown Square, merits a look too as an Art Deco movie house (renovated and in 2001 opened as a live community theatre venue).

The orchestra is composed of high school level students from the Williamson County area who want to have a greater musical experience.

The Georgetown Palace Theatre is a model of a successful community theatre. The staff are dedicated to providing quality and affordable entertainment and educational opportunities in the performing arts.

In addition to that main stage lineup, the theatre has put together fun-filled musical performances and non-musical plays that are sure to entertain. History matters in Georgetown, and the Palace has held a place in the city’s heart since 1926. Built in the downtown Square, it opened originally to show silent films. The theatre is the only Art Deco period building in Georgetown, and the marquee is original to the theatre. The former movie house was renovated and in 2001 opened as a live theatre venue. The Palace’s education program draws students from across Central Texas; it offers classes, workshops, and training programs for aspiring actors, dancers, and singers from four years old to adults, and is currently engaged in a $2.5 million campaign to build a new Children’s Theatre and Education Center in the Cultural District with a 200-seat flexible configuration theatre, dance studio, classrooms, and more. The Palace education program is staffed by a cast of teaching artists who have worked in high school drama departments, Central Texas theatres, and on Broadway. The Georgetown Palace Theatre’s performances and education program are a gem for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM unless otherwise noted. Palace Theatre productions do require a ticket.

GEORGETOWN HERITAGE SOCIETY 811 S. MAIN STREET • 512.869.8597 • GEORGETOWNHERITAGESOCIETY.ORG

The Georgetown Heritage Society (GHS) preserves and promotes interest in Georgetown’s heritage. GHS advocacy extends beyond saving old places; rather, it looks forward, as history, memory, and continuity contribute to sustainability, creativity, and economic growth. The society operates the Grace Heritage Center, which is open Thursday and Friday 9 AM - 5 PM, Sunday 1 - 4 PM, and by appointment. The building served the congregation of Grace Episcopal Church from 1881 until 1991. Now in its second century of use and at its third location, it serves as the focal point of Founders Memorial Park and is one of many historic structures in Georgetown that have withstood the rigors of nature, growth, and change in the community. The church was rehabilitated through a unique partnership between the City of Georgetown and the GHS, which raised funds for and supervised the restoration project.

GHS hosts events that support and showcase Georgetown in a variety of ways. The Holiday Home Tour in historic Georgetown in December and The Amazing Heritage Quest in April promote the architecture and legend of historic Georgetown. Programs and activities engage the public in the past and the future. The establishment of a Preservation Fund Grant Program assists residents and business owners in the renovation and rehabilitation of historic structures. In 2017, GHS celebrates four decades of preserving the past for future generations. They invite you to join them as they tip their hat to Georgetown’s history and heritage.
