Inspiring Our Youth

The Youth Art Show is an exciting competition that enables students to express their creativity and showcase their skills while earning money to put towards their future. Students from Texas grades 9 – 12 can enter their artwork in the areas of traditional, photography, digital and sculpture/3D. Forty artists will have their work presented for purchase at the Rodeo Austin Gala in February. No school or organization affiliation is required for entry. Western or Texas heritage inspired pieces encouraged but not required.

Thank you to the exhibitors, teachers, judges and donors of the 2020 Youth Art Show! Thanks to our generous donors, more than $60,000 will be awarded to the top 40 exhibitors. Exhibitors will be contacted with their check and buyer information in the upcoming week. All placing exhibitors are required to write thank you letters to their buyers.
