The Carver is a multicultural and multi-disciplinary performing and visual arts center with an emphasis on the contributions of African and African-American artists. For over 40 years, the Carver has sought to expose our audiences to and celebrate the diverse cultures of our world by presenting local, national and international performing and visual artists. Our season of programming includes performing arts presentations, visual arts exhibits, residencies, master classes and other arts education programs. Though the Carver strives to work extensively with the city’s east side neighborhoods, all programs are available to the larger San Antonio community and beyond.

Through our programming, the Carver strives not only to preserve, celebrate and foster the creative expression of the African-American culture, but also to serve as an agent of cross-cultural awareness, exchange and tolerance. The Carver’s complex houses a 650-seat proscenium theatre, a smaller black-box performance space, dressing rooms, scene shop, dance studio, art studio, gallery and offices. Artistic review is a year-round process. The season runs from October through June, with educational arts programs running throughout the year.
