Rodeo Art Auction Picks

Artwork by five Spring Branch ISD high school students will be auctioned to the highest bidders during the annual Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Art Auction this Sunday.

The Rodeo’s School Art Program, which began in 1964, now has more than 300,000 entries each year. Student artists submit original art projects based on Western culture, history or heritage. If a student’s work is selected for Rodeo auction, the young artist is guaranteed $1,000 or more in scholarships.

View student artwork gallery on the HLSR website.

Memorial High School student artists selected for the auction:
  • Anna Cho, 10th grade, Acrylic Painting, Best of Show winner
  • Judy Oh, 12th grade, Prisma Color Pencil, Gold Medal winner
  • Ryan Cowell, 11th Grade, Oil Paint, Special Merit winner
  • Juliana Baik, 12th Grade, Prisma Color Pencil, Special Merit winner
Stratford High School student artist selected for auction:
  • Amy Cho, 11th grade, Media Color Pencil, Gold Medal winner
Students who were awarded Best of Show, Gold Medal or Special Merit by Rodeo officials will have their original art displayed in the Hayloft Gallery at Reliant Park.

The Houston Rodeo this year will be held through March 17.

In January, SBISD hosted its annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum, which drew hundreds of students and parents during a two-day viewing session. Click here to view online gallery of SBISD winners.
