About Pearland Arts League

The Pearland Arts League (PAL) began as a ‘brain-storming’ session in October 2003, initiated by Pearland Mayor Tom Reid among a diverse group of Pearland-area residents, brought together by a shared interest in promoting fine arts within the community.

The group’s purpose centers on incorporating the artistic talents of local residents under one community umbrella.  Governed by an elected board, the PAL structure is a self-governing, community-directed non-profit entity with membership open to everyone in the Pearland area. PAL-sanctioned events showcasing talent take place around the city regularly.
