Inaugural HISD Visual Art Teachers’ Exhibition opens this week

Throughout the month of March, Houston Independent School District Visual Art teachers will showcase their artistic talents in the inaugural HISD Visual Art Teachers’ Exhibition.  

Visual art teachers from all over the district applied to participate in the exhibition. Twenty-two artists were selected to exhibit new works for the show. They were selected by a jury of peers based upon artistic quality and instructional testimonial submissions.  

HISD artists will be exhibiting new, never-seen-before works for this art show.  The faculty showcase is an opportunity for people to view new directions in work by some of the district’s most talented artists and educators.  

“This show gives HISD art teachers the chance to remind the community that they are practicing artists,” said Secondary Visual Arts Curriculum Specialist Chandel Bonner-Hancock. “This show is representative of the strengths of the district’s instructors and their programs.”   

The exhibition will open with a reception from 5-6 p.m. on Thursday, March 7 at Mid Main Lofts (3550 Main St, 77002), and pieces will be on display in the windows of the Main Street Projects Gallery Space through March 31. The exhibition is free to the public. For more information, visit
