The Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor

Connecting Commerce, Culture & Arts

The Arts
"Where the Edge and Legacy Meet"

The designated Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor can boast of having a variety of arts organizations and artists that live along the trail and in the neighborhoods.

Performance art includes the Woodlawn Theatre Group, Jumpstart Performance Company, Jewel of Art Dance Studio, Danzavida De San Antonio Dance Company, Raices de Arte Espanol, and Network for Young Artists.

Network for Young Arts has been recognized by the Fiesta Commission as a Fiesta Event that brings at least 40,000 people every year to experience the concerts on several stages. We look forward to this event every Fiesta which usually occurs in April across San Antonio.

Exhibition spaces include Centro Cultural Aztlan focusing on Chicano and Tejano artists for 30 years in operation.

Clamp Light Studios and Hausman Millworks Creative Community, both located in Beacon Hill give local artists venues to exhibit as well as providing studio space that can be rented for reasonable costs.  The artists that work in these studios exhibit throughout the State of Texas and have been recognized nationally as well.

Artpace founded in 1993 is world renowned for the artist in residence program that includes every cycle, a local, national, and international artists.  These collaborative exhibitions have led to cross pollination in art through the relationships built across the world.

From exhibit, to dance , theatre,  to music,  and vocals, these are all along the Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor.  The art vibe is real, authentic and has an edge.

TCA recognizes that a thriving creative sector is a powerful economic development asset. Cultural district development is one strategy that helps a community boost their economies while realizing other cultural and civic benefits. The outcomes of cultural districts extend beyond the arts and benefit all members of a community. Learn More about OSTCC’s designation as a cultural district.
