    About GCAC, Inc. - In 1986, the Garland City Council created the nine-member Garland Cultural Arts Commission (GCAC) to serve as a liaison between the City and all community-based arts and historic organizations. The Commission's primary goal is the increased visibility of the arts in Garland. In 1987, the Commission created the private, non-profit organization known as GCAC, Inc. to pursue various sources of revenue in order to fund meritorious arts and historic groups through a sub-grant program.
