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 Summer 2022.

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.
