The City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture is the custodian of 19 city-owned cultural facilities, where a wide variety of arts and cultural programs are offered for citizens and visitors. These facilities consist of many of our community's most important cultural venues, and when combined, represent more than 1.5 million square feet of space dedicated to arts and cultural functions in our community.
The OAC operates five of these facilities directly, referring to them as "cultural centers". The Cultural Centers are as follows: Bath House Cultural Center, Latino Cultural Center, Meyerson Symphony Center, South Dallas Cultural Center, and Oak Cliff Cultural Center.
Additionally, the OAC directly manages the historic Majestic theater and other cultural facilities through private/public partnerships with nonprofit arts and cultural organizations with long-term management or operation agreements approved by City Council.
