    The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents the exhibiton Celebrating Cowboy Culture: The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Program. On view through September 12, 2010 at the Audrey Jones Beck Building.

    The MFAH partners with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo to present Celebrating Cowboy Culture. This exhibition showcases Grand Prix winners of the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo art competition over the past 10 years. Created by high school students from 15 independent school districts, the winning works incorporate a variety of media, including pencil, watercolor, and pastels.

    Approximately 300,000 students from 100 independent school districts and 60 private schools in the Houston and surrounding areas enter the competition each year. Entries are narrowed down to about 30,000 for judging, and 50 are chosen at Grand Prix to be auctioned off to raise scholarship money for Texas students.

    Celebrating Cowboy Culture coincides with The Masterworks of Charles M. Russell: A Retrospective of Paintings and Sculpture, on view at the MFAH this summer from June 6 to August 29.
