Who we are
The Pearland Arts League (PAL) began as a ‘brain-storming’ session in October 2003, initiated by Pearland Mayor Tom Reid among a diverse group of Pearland-area residents, brought together by a shared interested in promoting fine arts within the community.
The group’s purpose centers on incorporating the artistic talents of local residents under one community umbrella. Governed by an elected board, the PAL structure is a self-governing, community-directed non-profit entity with membership open to everyone in the Pearland area. Watch for PAL-sanctioned events showcasing talent around the city.
It is the PAL board’s sincere wish that every interested member of the community will have the opportunity to participate in the Pearland Arts League.
