Tammy Meinershagen strives to be ‘champion’ and ‘protector’ of arts in Frisco
Frisco Arts Executive Director Tammy Meinershagen has spent more than five years advocating for the arts in Frisco.
Through her efforts, she has increased membership of the Frisco Arts nonprofit arts advocacy organization, pushed for an increase in arts public funding and organized the city’s first-ever Frisco Arts Walk.
Passion for Progress
Passion is the fuel of progress. Without passion, quite literally, our country, and our beloved city of Frisco, would not exist. Businesses would not bloom. Life-saving research would not find cures. Advancements in technology would stagnate. Entertainment would wither. Even our individual reasons for living would cease to exist. The beautiful variance of our passions has woven Frisco into the city it is today. Each passion has its place within the masterpiece … and age is no limitation.

Community Leader: Frisco Association for the Arts ready to take next step
Q: What are some of the expectations in Frisco for the arts in 2016?
A: I think the key word for the arts in Frisco in 2016 is revitalization. With the passage of $10 million in bonds toward a cultural and performing arts center, Frisco residents made a strong statement of support for the arts. We’ve turned a corner for arts and culture in Frisco, and there is now more momentum toward creative placemaking, finding innovative ways to integrate arts and culture into existing and future areas of the city. New partnerships and collaborative efforts are naturally forming as people are committed to helping the arts thrive in Frisco.
