Student Art Contest
Performing Arts Houston’s Student Art Contest aligns the visual arts with Performing Arts Houston’s mainstage programming. Each season, students from the Houston area submit artwork to compete for cash prizes and the opportunity to have their artwork exhibited around the city.
For years, using the magic of the stage, Performing Arts Houston has celebrated the diverse cultures and communities that make up the great city of Houston through the talents of our visiting artists. This season, that tradition continues with three shows that highlight diverse cultures from around the world that are also strongly represented in Houston: Nella, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and Yotam Ottolenghi. The 24th Annual Student Art Contest theme, TAPESTRY OF HOUSTON, encourages students to explore their own cultural heritage and celebrate the diversity and community found throughout our city.
Through their submissions, students are challenged to answer the questions: What communities do you belong to? How can we both honor our heritage and celebrate the future?
