Minter Park in downtown Abilene has the first colorized, programmable water curtain of its kind in the nation. Similar ones are being installed in Las Vegas and Houston. The city hopes to have Minter Park completed by the end of this month. The ACAC helped fund the limestone wall behind the curtain, video surveillance and canopy tree lighting thanks to a cultural district grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Thank you!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our community, we are thrilled to announce we exceeded our #AbileneGives goal and are within $2,500 of making the match for the Texas Commission on the Arts grant of $112,000!! With four months to go, we are confident the match will be reached and can’t wait to celebrate this fall in the Adamson-Spalding Garden.
