McAllen, TX – April 16, 2024 – The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) and Edinburg CISD present “Edinburg Celebrates Visual Art Students”. Supported by Edinburg High School and Barrientes Middle School, this exhibition represents a collaborative effort to promote arts education and provide students with opportunities to develop their artistic skills further demonstrating the community’s commitment to fostering creativity and cultural enrichment. Additionally, the exhibition is supported, in part, by a grant from Texas Women for the Arts, a program of the Texas Cultural Trust.

Through their artwork, students express their creativity, demonstrate leadership, and celebrate their individual abilities. It is a celebration of diversity, empowerment, and the transformative power of the arts.
