Special Thanks to our  FSOA 2020 Artist Participants

Due to national precautions taken to protect the public against outbreaks of COVID–19, and in following all health procedures and precautions established, the For The Sake of Art Committee is observing the development of the pandemic and as a result the Wearable Art Competition & Gala has been moved to Spring 2021. Good Luck to all our participants and be sure to check back weekly for updates. Until then Be Safe!

The FSOA wearable art competition celebrates the vibrant talent of emerging artists and designers while highlighting the permanent collection of African American art at the University Museum at Texas Southern University.  Conceived originally as a fundraiser to support the restoration of the University’s 128 murals, the competition has grown to feature works from art alumni from the 1950’s through the 21st century.
