Deep in the Art of Texas, you’ll find a small town with big ideas and discover why dozens of artists call Clifton “Home.”

An oasis of pastoral beauty and gracious hospitality, Clifton offers a bountiful selection of creative experiences and opportunities, including workshops, live performances, art shows, fairs, and The Cliftex Theatre – Texas’ oldest continuously operating movie house.

Clifton’s creative talents are not limited to a particular medium. The local art scene is a mosaic of artistic expression that has infused the life of the community. In the company of nationally and regionally renowned artists, innovative spirits find encouragement in a setting that inspires and enriches creativity across many disciplines – visual, music, theater, film, dance, and media. The local love and appreciation of artistry is reflected in the quality and craftsmanship of goods, architecture, literature, and home arts.
An array of art organizations forms a network of support for creative spirits and artistic endeavors, resulting in an increasing number of participants and opportunities.

Conveniently located midway between Austin and Dallas/Ft. Worth, and only minutes from Waco, Clifton is home to a diverse community and is a haven for artists and historians. The community has a rich agricultural and pioneer history that is reflected in many of the works you’ll discover in galleries, museums, shops, and even alleyways.

Fine arts, fine folks, a fine time!
