​About ​Us

​Thornton Arts & Culture Center​

​The Arts and Culture Division coordinates the programming and promotion of arts and humanities in the community and is responsible for a variety of City sponsored programs such as art exhibits, concerts, and Funtaztikidz.

The Arts and Culture Division works with community members to identify and cultivate support, interest, and involvement not only in the visual and performing arts, but in historical preservation and volunteering. We strive to continually enhance these important aspects of our community.

The division serves as the City liaison to the Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO). TASHCO is a non-profit citizen committee appointed by City Council to administer grant funding provided by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). TASHCO also serves the community in the selection of visual art and involvement in various cultural events.


The Thornton Arts & Culture Center (TACC, pronounced 'Taxi'), 9209 Dorothy Blvd., is home to performances, classes, art exhibits in the Oz Gallery, and the Volunteer Thornton program.
