The art museum’s annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit, held on Jan. 14-15 and Jan. 19, draws hundreds of students and parents for the two-day viewing session with area judging. SBISD students who are awarded Best of Show, Gold Medal and Special Merit by Rodeo officials win the right to display their works in Hayloft Gallery at Reliant Park.

During the Rodeo in March, several dozen student artworks from across the region will be chosen for Grand Prix judging and the annual Rodeo art auction, which can result in significant scholarships for fortunate young artists like those in SBISD.
