RCAS is a 501 C3 organization. We are sponsored in part by a grant from the City of Richardson through the Richardson Cultural Arts Commission. The committee above is responsible for preparing and presenting our annual Grant application. The Commission reviews the previous year. RCAS presents the proposed financials necessary to fund our yearly activities. RCAS also presents proposed expenditures concerning technological and equipment upgrades.

The City of Richardson through the Cultural Arts Commission has been most generous and supportive each year. An example of the City’s generosity is to welcome changing art exhibits at the Heights and Huffhines Recreation Centers. RCAS reciprocates through the establishing of and yearly addition to the City Art Collection housed in the Richardson City Library. Susan Allison, head of the Library and liaison, Brian Gibson, work closely with RCAS in every aspect of display and exhibitions.

RCAS and the Richardson City Library have established a long and positive relationship. Our Art Exhibitions bring beauty and new art to the citizens of the city and the Library provides the space on the Third floor in what we call the Library Gallery. The Grant Committee, Board Members and Membership contribute to the continuing fulfillment of our Mission of promoting Creative Original Visual Art.
