A cowboy rendering by Memorial High senior Jessica Vega has been chosen for inclusion in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Art Contest Auction to be held on Sunday.
Vega was one of 52 students chosen to have artwork assigned to the auction. More than 300,000 students made up the original field of entrants.
The auction, set for 11:45 a.m. in the Reliant Arena Sales Pavilion, is open to the public.
Meanwhile, Pasadena ISD art students who placed in the district-level Best of Show, Gold Medal and Special Merit categories, and their teachers, attended the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Awards at Reliant Center on Saturday.
Glassell School of Art Scholarships for a one-week workshop were awarded to Sandy Llanes Chaves, a first-grader at Bush Elementary, to Vega and to Memorial High students Maria Morales, Jessica Riojas, Tram Le and Brittany Seay.
Seay also received the Western Art Academy Scholarship to attend an intensive one month workshop in Kerrville at the Western Museum of Art.
