Texas Cultural Trust’s signature, star-studded event, the Texas Medal of Arts Awards (TMAA), honors Texas leaders and luminaries who have achieved greatness through their creative talents, as well as those whose generosity has opened doors to artistic opportunity for Texans of all ages. Past Honorees include Former First Lady Laura Bush, Clint Black, Robert Rodriguez, Betty Buckley, Robert Edsel, Keith Carter, Dan Rather, Robert Rauschenberg, Eva Longoria, John Phillip Santos, Gene Jones, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Scott Pelley, Bill Paxton and many more.
Events include a VIP Legislative Cocktail Reception, public resolution at the Texas Capitol, Honoree Dinner, Stars of Texas Luncheon at the Governor's Mansion, Gala Dinner for 1,000 guests, and Awards Show that is filmed for television broadcast.
Autumn Rich & Co. has produced the past five Texas Medal of Arts Awards. In addition to managing production logistics for all the events of TMAA, we also served as Honoree Liaison and Director of the awards show, including script-writing, set design, talent booking, run of show, TV and video production.
