Texas Women Travel

Each year, members have the opportunity to travel to different arts destinations across the nation and enjoy special access to exclusive restaurants, shopping, arts, and other cultural amenities.

One of the many benefits of being a Texas Woman for the Arts is having the opportunity to partake in yearly cultural excursions across America. The Texas Cultural Trust organizes trips which cater specifically to the interest of our TWA members and include exciting VIP experiences such as: behind-the-scenes museum tours, rooftop soirees, private homes and collections, arts festivals, exclusive dining experiences, and much more. Legacy members have the additional benefit of taking multiple trips per year.

Spring Trip to New York City has been cancelled.
