Rising Eyes of Texas

Every year RCA hosts a statewide juried exhibition for undergraduate and graduate students emerging in the visual arts. Prize winners are awarded to the top three artworks, selected by invited juror.

2012 juror: Colette Copeland, Multimedia Artist and Arts Writer for Glasstire and Afterimage

In addition, one artist will be selected for the Rising Eyes Residency, a new program that will result in a solo show in RCA's Garden Gallery this August. 

See installation views from the 2012 Show at the official website!
