Rose Center Council for the Arts was established in 1976 to promote the arts in the Lakeway Area. It’s a volunteer driven organization that is supported by gifts, memberships, program fees, and public contributions.
The organization is housed in the historic Rose School, which is maintained to provide gallery, museum, meeting, and operations space to the many Lakeway area arts organizations as well as the public.
The operations are managed by 4 staff members, who coordinate the efforts of the Rose Center artists, teachers, and volunteers to deliver its programs.
