Hill Country Council for the Arts (HCCArts), with the assistance from the Majestic Ranch Arts Foundation, opened its state-of-the-arts applied and fine arts classroom at The AgriCultural Museum and Arts Center at 102 City Park Road in December.
HCCArts continues to host decorative art classes, fine art workshops, art lectures and special events but will now have a light-filled, roomy space for welcoming more artists and artist-wanna-bes to the renovated Wagen Haus.
HCCArts has been around for many years and has birthed cultural organizations in Kendall County. Board members Paula Horner and Rob Ziegler worked with the Director of The AgriCultural Kristy Watson McNelly, the City, County and Director of the Majestic Ranch Arts Foundation to acquire a lease on the property a few years ago. The farm equipment and buildings remained in place to offer an agricultural history for the County. The largest building is perfect for special events.
The AgriCultural continues to open its gates to events like Boerne Bierfest, art exhibits, tractor pulls, festivals and the twice-monthly Bluegrass music circles. In 2022 Boerne Bierfest will be held on September 24 as its annual fundraiser. Go to https://www.hccarts.org to get full information on the venue and events.
