Art is a member of the Texas City Attorneys Association and the International Municipal Lawyers Association, as well as the Williamson and Travis County Bar Associations, and the Hispanic Bar Association. In his off time, Art serves as President of the Georgetown Palace Theatre where you can occasionally see him perform – then demand a refund.
