Founded in 2011, St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts is a center for arts, culture and community in the East Dallas neighborhood. Since 2011,SMCA has partnered with the Dallas Bach Society, La Novella Baroque, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts, and Dallas Black Dance Theatre to offer FREE live performances in the Cathedral, along with public exhibitions by local artists such as Carolyn Brown, Connie Sales and Fred Gardner in the newly refurbished Justus Sundermann Gallery

St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts receives no funding from the Cathedral parish or the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Present financial support comes from patrons and supporters who are members and “friends” of the Cathedral. Our goal is to generate new audiences, which in turn would provide financial support and benefits to help sustain SMCA into the future. An integral part of the SMCA philosophy is to share the arts with the entire community regardless of one’s ability to pay.
