Become a Pillar of Cathedral Arts!
Saint Matthew’s Cathedral Arts is about to celebrate its sixth season!
Through the free programs of Cathedral Arts, historic St. Matthew’s Cathedral has become a center for arts, education, and community in Old East Dallas. Over 2,000 adults and children from the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond have experienced our free performing and visual arts events in the past twelve months. These events include educational art programs for children and adults, recitals and concerts, monthly Choral Evensong services, gallery exhibits and artist receptions, and guest lectures.
In the past five seasons a mix of culturally-diverse school children living within one mile of the cathedral, as well as Uptown Dallas, Lakewood, and the Park Cities, have participated in the high-quality after-school programs of Cathedral Choristers and Open Art Studio initiatives.
St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts receives no funding from the annual Cathedral budget or the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Our financial support comes primarily from supporters who are members and friends of the Cathedral. Additional funding is provided by Communities Foundation of Texas, the annual North Texas Giving Day initiative, the Episcopal Foundation, the Swiss Avenue Historical District, the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
Planning is almost complete for our biggest season yet! Cathedral Arts needs your support as we continue to grow and strategically plan for this year and beyond. Our goal for this year’s Pillar Campaign is $20,000.00, which equals only 200 gifts of $100 each. Your gift of one or more “Pillars” at $100 each will help us reach this goal and enable us to continue offering the outstanding free public arts programming people have come to expect from St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts.
All gifts are greatly appreciated and fully tax-deductible!
With sincere thanks for your consideration,
H. Michie Akin
