I think the tour is a great idea.
BMFA should also include an exhibit of Brownsville artists
to give patrons a better idea of art created in the valley.
better yet, it would be nice to have San Benito and Harlingen art communities included.

As far as the arts, McAllen has a partnership of city,chamber of commerce, and media pushing an arts district. There are several independant galleries working together on an art walk. This has been the most successful event to date.
