Cultural Arts Initiatives

Cultural Arts Strategic Plan & Implementation Guide


Adopted in 2014, the Cultural Arts Strategic Plan and Implementation Guide launches a process to ensure sustainability and vitality of the city’s cultural offerings.

Process and Goals


A comprehensive approach to supporting the arts throughout the community now and in the future was developed along with an action plan and schedule. The process for developing the strategic plan and implementation guide was public and participative, and built upon the City’s existing vision. The overall goal is to ensure that by making use of existing, as well as new public and private resources, the City and community partners will be able to collaborate on flexible initiatives to implement the recommended strategies and enhance cultural arts within Sugar Land.

Art in Public Spaces


Art in Public Spaces aims to make art available on a rotational basis in public spaces including the Imperial Park Recreation Center, the Sugar Land Regional Airport, and the historic Sugar Land Auditorium. This program is available to local art groups, artists, students, and others that meet specific guidelines. From time to time, additional locations are available throughout the City for display and public viewing.
