All entries have been received  and an unprecedented number of aspiring artists from local schools will have their first opportunity for a full museum exhibition with the Tyler Museum of Art’s 15th Annual High School Art Exhibition*, scheduled for March 31 – May 5 in the TMA’s North Gallery.

This year’s juried competition tops the previous record of 2018, featuring 109 students from a best-ever 20 high-school campuses in Tyler and nearby cities. In addition to the senior-level students in the juried competition, eleven sophomore and junior students are entered out of competition in a special “Up & Coming” category.
