TSAC - How We Began
The late Lane Stripling, local civic leader and architect, helped to create and shape what Trinity Star Arts Council is today. As a founding director, Lane’s legacy is huge and far-reaching and remains TSAC’s inspiration.
Formed in late 2009, the Council is a volunteer run, not-for-profit organization dedicated to benefitting educational and cultural arts in the area.
Its goal is to benefit citizens by providing opportunities to engage in arts-related activities and to be entertained by them.
Located in the Trinity River basin, Freestone County was the most populated and prosperous of a six-county surrounding the area which bordered the Trinity River during the 1850s and 1860s. The region was often referred to as the Heart of the Trinity Star and Freestone County became a cultural center. TSAC's vision is to once again bring the community together through the arts.
Since its beginning, TSAC has presented numerous musical events, art exhibitions, children’s literary programs, college scholarships, culinary classes and community theatre productions to Freestone County residents and guests.
