Can you imagine Round Rock without the arts? Without the arts there’d be no music, no cinema, no dance, no literature, no poetry, no fashion, no funny videos. We’d be devoid of imagination and would be a very dull and boring place. But, not to worry!

Eight years ago, two prominent ladies from our community imagined an event to celebrate the artsCathy Kincaid and Kris Whitfield have been key players for the arts in our community and dreamed up a night of arts and music that has become Imagine. Cathy was the first editor of the amazingly popular Community Impact, and Kris, of course, is a City Councilmember, business owner and volunteer extraordinaire.

The Imagine event has grown into an annual celebration with a spectacular showcase of art and music. It features over 150 renowned regional artists and their art, performances from Round Rock theatre, dance and symphonic groups, tables piled high with decadent desserts, and a place to see and visit with your friends. And, naturally, peruse art you can see and buy.

This year’s Imagine will take place on Saturday evening, Feb. 27, in the beautiful, spacious Avery Building at Texas State University’s Round Rock campus, 1555 University Blvd.

Imagine 2016 is expected to draw over 1,500 patrons. Admission this year is only $15 for the general public, which includes meeting the artists, dessert tables and drinks for your enjoyment. Plus, you get to choose your favorite for the People’s Choice awards.

We look forward to seeing you at Round Rock’s premiere arts event!
