Working to increase opportunities to enjoy, engage and access the arts in El Paso!

The Museum and Cultural Affairs Division is tasked to assist in developing a world-class arts community in El Paso, Texas. To accomplish this, the department established the Museums Division and the Cultural Affairs Division. The Museums Division is comprised of the El Paso Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Archaeology and the El Paso Museum of History, each dedicated to providing exhibitions and educational activities that recognize the region's mutli-cultural heritage. The Cultural Affairs Division implements funding programs, public art programs, cultural tourism initiatives and performing/visual arts events that provide a variety of opportunities to engage in arts and cultural activities.

MCAD continues to impact the El Paso community and the region through its museums, projects and programming. This success is due, in large part, to the dedication the team has to MCAD's missions.
