SPA Student Art Contest

SPA’s Annual Student Art Contest aligns the visual arts with SPA’s mainstage programming. Each season, students from the Houston area submit artwork to SPA to compete for cash prizes and the opportunity to have their artwork exhibited around the city.

For over 50 years, Society for the Performing Arts has been an integral part of the Houston arts community, using the power of the stage to reflect the vibrancy of our city.

This season, in response to the challenges faced by the Greater Houston community, the theme of the 23rd Annual Student Art Contest is RESILIENCE, empowering students to reflect on their own strength and to use the joy of artmaking as a tool to build self-confidence and peace.

More information regarding registration and submissions for the 23rd Annual Student Art Contest will be available in late fall 2020.
