Artists are invited to render their inspirations from the State of Texas. The artist need not be a current resident of Texas, as long as the subject matter is of the Lone Star State. Original two-dimensional artwork, excluding photography, completed after January 1, 2016 will be accepted.

This competition is held in conjunction with the Witte Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, The Art of Texas: 250 Years opening Saturday, May 4, 2019.
