Texas Cultural Trust announced today that the 2021 Texas Medal of Arts Awards, scheduled to take place Oct. 18 and 19 will not occur as planned.

“The health, safety, and comfort of TMAA attendees are of the utmost importance, and because of the current COVID-19 conditions and Delta variant, the 11th biennial awards will take place during its traditional time frame over February 21 and 22, 2023,” said a statement from the trust.

The Texas Medal of Arts Awards is the signature fundraising event of the Texas Cultural Trust and is held biennially in Austin in odd-numbered years when the Texas Legislature meets. This year’s event had been postponed from this spring.
